I received my MCSE 4.0 with IIS 3.0 in 1998. IIS 4.0 was not yet available. Of course 3.0 expired, and since the MCSE 4.0 was going away anyway I didn't rush to upgrade the elective. Then MS made their decision to keep the NT 4.0 MCSE cert. By that time it was too late to upgrade the IIS 3.0 elective.
I also found out that they consider the IIS 3.0 a MCSE 3.5 course but they gave me the NT 4.0 MCSE with it. Should they not have to grandfather that in as they did TCP/IP? Do I have any alternatives here? I am hesitant to spend the time and money to upgrade certs that MS may change at any moment.
