Hi All,

Please forgive me for posting in the wrong section if I am. This is my first post.

I plan to upgrade my current MCSE to MCITP: Enterprise Administrator very soon. I have done some reasearch and found that I need to complete the following exams: 70-680(Windows 7) + 70-649(TS Upgrade) + 70-647(Pro Enterprise Admin). After checking on the Microsoft MCP Website with the certification planner I found that the MCITP: Enterprise Administrator certification was not available to be completed by writing the upgrade exam. It shows the path to follow is to write all 6 exams.

I have already written the following microsoft exams in the order below:

70-271, 70-272 (Obtained MCDST),70-270, 70-290, 70-291 (Obtained MCSA),70-293, 70-284 (Obtained MCSA+M),70-294,70-297 (Obtained MCSE),70-621 (Obtained MCITP-EST on Vista ), 70-682 (MCIPT-EDST on Windows 7)

In effect, I have the following certifications: MCITP-EDST on Windows 7, MCITP-EST on Windows Vista, MCTS-Vista Config, MCTS-Win 7 Config, MCSE(2003), MCSA+M (2003), MCSA(2003), MCDST & MCP.

Could there be a problem with the certification planner on the MCP site that it causing it not to reflect the correct path or am I missing an exam or used an elective to many times?

Please help :unsure: I plan to write the 70-649 exam in two weeks but I do not wanna write this one if I have to go through the full path.

Thank you.

Just saw this topic so I am in a somewhat similar situation where my mcse is 2003. I just checked the microsoft link that says if you pass 70-649, you get MCTS so what other tests would you suggest to get to the MCITP level?
