I agree, as someone who has been certified since Windows 2000 Server, it is sad to see the MCSA / MCSE certification tracks being retired. CompTIA Server+ is a good foundational certification.
Role-based certifications are much more aligned with todays environments. But it will take time for hiring managers to understand what they need to look for when hiring.
Focus on getting certified in a skillset, not an operating system version. Get certified in Azure or Microsoft 365, this is where most organizations are heading. As more and more move to the cloud, these are the certs you will want.
I miss deploying and configuring servers, but I don't have to any more. I go to Azure and spin up a new web app in minutes. Azure deploys, configures, and updates the underlying OS. I don't need to know what OS my Azure Active Directory is being hosted on. Its all PaaS and SaaS.
My crystal ball is often cloudy, but I see Windows Server following Windows 10 and being delivered as a service. Rolling updates, no more versions to get certified in.
I wish they weren't retiring the MCSA / MCSE, we have to adjust to it.
