Exchange Server Stress and Performance Tool (64 bit)
Use Microsoft Exchange Server Stress and Performance (ESP), a highly scalable stress and performance tool for Exchange, to simulate large numbers of client sessions by concurrently accessing one or more protocol servers. ESP includes multiple modules that you can use to simulate a wide variety of protocols and loads. You can run modules concurrently from multiple hosts, thereby more realistically simulating physically separate client machines. There is no limit to the number of computers on your network that can host ESP modules.

Exchange Load Generator (64 bit)
Use Microsoft Exchange Load Generator (LoadGen) as a simulation tool to measure the impact of MAPI clients on Exchange servers. LoadGen allows you to test how a server running Exchange responds to e-mail loads. To simulate the delivery of these messaging requests, you run LoadGen tests on client computers. These tests send multiple messaging requests to the Exchange server, thereby causing a mail load. LoadGen is a useful tool for administrators who are sizing servers and validating a deployment plan. Specifically, LoadGen helps you determine if each of your servers can handle the load to which they are intended to carry. Another use for LoadGen is to help validate the overall solution.

Collaboration Data Objects, version 1.2.1
CDO 1.2.1 (Collaboration Data Objects, version 1.2.1) is a package providing access to Outlook-compatible objects through a COM-based API. Using CDO, a program can connect to a MAPI store, and then perform operations against that store, including creating and processing calendar items, and resolving and handling mail recipients. Starting with Exchange 2007 and Outlook 2007, Microsoft will distribute CDO 1.2.1 as a Web download, separated from the two products.

Microsoft Exchange Server Jetstress Tool (64 bit)
Use Jetstress to verify the performance and stability of a disk subsystem prior to putting an Exchange server into production. Jetstress helps verify disk performance by simulating Exchange disk Input/Output (I/O) load. Specifically, Jetstress simulates the Exchange database and log file loads produced by a specific number of users. You use Performance Monitor, Event Viewer, and ESEUTIL in conjunction with Jetstress to verify that your disk subsystem meets or exceeds the performance criteria you establish. After a successful completion of the Jetstress Disk Performance and Stress Tests in a non-production environment, you will have ensured that your Exchange disk subsystem is adequately sized (in terms of performance criteria you establish) for the user count and user profiles you have established. It is highly recommended that the Jetstress user read through the tool documentation before using the tool.

21 February 2007: TechNet Webcast: 24 Hours of Exchange Server 2007 (Part 10 of 24): Recipient Management, Policies, and Permissions (Level 200)
This is the first of six webcasts in the series in which we focus on various aspects of security in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007. In this session, we explore policies and permissions, and we illustrate the recipient management model, which has changed since Microsoft Exchange Server 2003. Join this session to learn how Exchange Server 2007 handles resources and what changes there are to the administrative permission model. We also demonstrate how Exchange Server 2007 gives you the option to separate your Active Directory directory service administration from your Exchange Server. Other topics we cover in the next five webcasts on Exchange Server 2007 security include compliance, antivirus, anti-spam, edge protection with the Edge Transport server role, and Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server. To complete the homework that is associated with this webcast series, you can register and attend the live Labcast Series, or you can register for a self-paced Virtual Lab.

28 February 2007: TechNet Webcast: 24 Hours of Exchange Server 2007 (Part 12 of 24): Configuring Edge Transport Servers (Level 200)
In this session, we look at the Edge Transport server role in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007. While we provided an overview of server roles in an earlier session of this series on Exchange Server 2007, we look at configuring the Edge Transport role in greater detail in this webcast. We begin by exploring the process for implementing an Edge Transport server role and by discussing EdgeSync, a service that provides data replication and synchronization between Active Directory and Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) for a subscribed Edge Transport server. From there, we examine the Internet message delivery, describe how it works, and demonstrate how to configure Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) connectors. We conclude with a discussion of security concerns associated with using SMTP e-mail and illustrate the options you have for securing SMTP e-mail.
