Passed 70-642

Just took exam 70-642 - Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure, Configuring. I was a little bit worried about this exam because manually calculating subnets and figuring out routing options was never my strength. That's what we have subnet calculators for, right?

Nonetheless, I passed with a 1000/1000 score. Admittedly, there was some luck involved here, because I had the feeling a lot of questions were about DNS and DHCP, and that was just the topic of the chapter I'm was recently working on for my Windows Server 2008 book.

Next on the todo-list: 70-640 - Windows Server 2008 Active Directory, Configuring.

Passed 70-643

In order to upgrade my MCSE certification, I'm taking exams for Windows Server 2008. I could upgrade through a special  upgrade path, but since I never took any exam on Windows 2003, I would first have to upgrade from 2000 to 2003, and then to 2008. I preferred to focus entirely on Windows Server 2008.

The end-goal is the MCITP: Enterprise Administrator certification. In order to achieve that, there are 4 exams 5 exams to pass. For starters, I took exam 70-643 (Windows Server 2008 Applications Infrastructure Configuration). My hope was that my experience in the webhosting business made the preparation bit easier and would also be a benefit taking the exam. As a result, I focussed more on topics like Terminal Server and Windows deployment options, and less on IIS.

I passed. 953 out of 1000. Topic needing more attention: IIS

:-O

Next up: 70-642. I'm almost getting my head around ipv6.
