Why should I get a Security Plus certification just to administer Business Objects on a Windows 2008 server ?

I'm working as a team member in Business Objects, there's a handful of us and we spread the wealth among Administration, Universe Design, and Report writing. The BO server (running Tomcat) resides on a Windows 2008 machine.

We get on to this machine for various BO Admin tasks (recently: setting up Active Directory Authentication, setting Auditing set up, changing passwords, etc.). BUT - by virtue of doing this on the W 2008 server, we are required to get a Security Plus certification . . . that seems a bit of an overkill to me.

What do you think ? As a business objects team member, this seems like a lot of training on Security Plus for basically no value to the organization.

It's a lot of time and effort to get Security Plus certified, time that seems to me would be better spent on Business Objects training. Shouldn't the Windows Server team take on the server tasks (with proper documentation and moral support ?)

    As BO admin, you should know some server knowledge. Yes i agree, Server team should take care of all servers, they might require certification.

    It is up to you, if you want to learn more on Server side.
