There is 2 upcoming certifications for server 2022- AZ-800 and AZ-801 here is the link for a recent post about the mid-december 2021 new certs.

Windows server Hybrid administrator. Also if you search in Youtube with AZ-800 or AZ-801 you will see several posted videos that show what these 2 certs cover. Note: to get the certification of Windows 2022 hybrid administrator you must pass these 2 exams.

It is not labeled as MCSA but it seems to at least provide a server admin cert although some people think some other certs covering more material may be coming.

Hi,

Microsoft is focused on role-based certifications, so there will not be Windows Server 2019 certifications. Windows Server 2019 content will be included in role-based certifications on an as-needed basis for certain job roles (e.g. Azure Apps & Infrastructure and Data & AI solution areas).

Hi @ScottDarryl-5061,

All remaining exams associated with Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA), Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD), Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE) have retired on January 31, 2021.

Microsoft’s focus on role-based training and certifications can help you develop necessary skills and experience to advance in an accelerated and increasingly competitive cloud-based world. Role-based training and certifications are kept current with new features and services that Microsoft is constantly adding to the cloud solution areas, minimizing skill gaps associated with the applicable job roles.

For more information see:

If you have any further questions I suggest you ask in the dedicated Microsoft Certification forum over here:
