    thanks guys...the company is paying for me to get certified so im taking does Server+ certification hold up? im really interested in servers so im debating whether taking it next or go MCP (70-270). im willing to get both for education.

    Server+ is more like "advanced A+"--heavy hardware. Also, some NOS material, puts you under pressure on disaster recovery and environmental monitoring(both atmosphere and physical security), obstinately pursuant of redundancy of data, and some material on logical security. You won't find a lot about networks on this one, even though you think that a person would think more networkingwise if you are dealing with servers. Network+ will help with what little LAN material is on the Server+.

    I've been studying different areas of MCP since I took Server+ exam, and, except for some parts about NOSs, I don't see a lot of "server-plusiness" in the MCP material.

    If you've spent a lot of time in a data center, Server+ shouldn't be a real big job for you to pass. If you want to get into a data center in more depth it should be a good step to take.

    MCP material is a step into what you will find to be served by the servers.
    I have finally realized that as far as MCSA/MCSE certification goes, the letters stand for Microsoft Cerfified System Administrator/Engineer--and emphasize the Microsoft. You're not looking at Linux or Unix or some other huge OS. But, M$ is certainly a great start, and might even be close to about all you will need in OSs, but don't sell hardware knowledge/experience short either.

    Hope this helps. Best of luck!

    @janmike, thank you for your answer - it helped, by reading your reply im going to get the Server+ next...i work at a tv studio and we have a number of servers...basically all of our tv shows are on servers in a RAID 3 and 5 configs...basically our operation revolves around servers so i may go for the server+ case youre wondering we use the Jupitor, Aurora, AVID servers and a number of others i cant think of...but Jupitor and Aurora are the main servers.
