    Default Passed - MCITP: Office 365 Administrator

    Microsoft Office 365 Exams are Here! - Born to Learn - Born To Learn - Born to Learn

    It's two tests:
    Deploying Office 365
    Administering Office 365

    I took both exams one day in January when they were in beta. It took a while, and I think there was a rescore involved, but MS finally released the results and I passed both exams to earn another MCITP. I doubt my scores were anything to brag about because I thought I was going to fail the Administering exam. It was split pretty even between Exchange and Sharepoint topics and I was sure my lack of Sharepoint admin experience was going to cost me.

    For prep, I went through the MS partner Office 365 training last fall and had completed a couple of Office 365 migrations before I took the exams. I also read the Office 365 Deployment Guide for Enterprises. You will need experience with Office 365 to pass these and MS allows you to sign up for a 30 day test account to evaluate the service.

    Congrats on the pass!

    I'm not that familiar with the 365 line of products, though. From what I can tell it's "clouding" the office suite?

    Thanks. It's more than just the Office suite, although that is part of it. Office 365 is Sharepoint 2010, Exchange 2010, and Lync hosted by Microsoft. I focus on the Exchange side, having already done some different implementations from full on-prem to cloud migrations, hybrid deployments that keep some mailboxes on prem, and hosted archiving where just the archive was in the cloud. Then throw in AD directory synchronization and AD federated services for single sign-on just for fun.

    The Office 365 Deployment Guide for Enterprises is the place to start, with further reading of technet articles if you need more depth.If you are doing an Exchange to 365 migration, it is critical that you follow the Exchange Deployment Assistant to the letter. Every step - in order - and every powershell command. Don't think, don't skip around on the steps, just do what it says, even if it is a very cumbersome way to make two Exchange organizations talk to each other. I haven't done a migration in an organization with Exchange 2010 SP2 and it's new hybrid deployment wizard that is supposed to make things easier, such as automating most of the manual PoSh commands and eliminating the service and delegation subdomains.
