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.

Microsoft Exchange Server Jetstress Tool (32 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.

Microsoft Exchange Calendar Update Tool
Before you run the Exchange Calendar Update tool, refer to Microsoft Knowledge Base article 930879, “How to address daylight saving time by using the Exchange Calendar Update Tool,” for complete information about potential effects on your IT environment and user base.

After installing the Windows and Exchange daylight saving time (DST) updates, all old appointments (both recurring and single instance) that occur during the extended DST period will be incorrectly displayed as having moved back one hour. These appointments will need to be updated so that they display correctly in Outlook, Outlook Web Access, and CDO-based applications. The Outlook Time Zone Data Update Tool enables end-users to update their own calendars. (For Outlook 2007 the time zone update feature is built into the application.)

The Exchange Calendar Update Tool enables administrators to avoid the challenges involved with broadly deploying the Outlook tool to all users and ensuring that each user runs the tool correctly.

In this session, we describe how monitoring an Exchange Server 2007 environment breaks down into two areas, server and client computers. We cover Microsoft Operations Manager 2005 (MOM), describe the management pack concept used by MOM to monitor servers, and look closely at the management pack for Exchange Server 2007. We also explain how to use MOM to manage client computer connectivity.

TechNet Webcast: 24 Hours of Exchange Server 2007 (Part 22 of 24): Using the Toolbox (Level 200)
Friday, April 6, 2007: In this session, we look at the tools in Microsoft Exchange Server 20007 that you can use to maintain an Exchange Server messaging environment. Learn how you can check the health of your Exchange Server environment by using the Microsoft Exchange Server Best Practices Analyzer, a tool that remotely collects configuration data from each server in the topology and automatically analyzes the data. We also introduce the Microsoft Exchange Troubleshooting Assistant, a tool that helps you troubleshoot performance, manage database recovery, and troubleshoot mail-flow issues. We demonstrate how to use the Exchange Troubleshooting Assistant, and we explain the tool in more detail in the subsequent two sessions. We also cover Performance Monitor, a tool you can configure to collect information about the performance of your messaging system, and we describe how to use the counters in Performance Monitor for monitoring Exchange Server 2007.

We cover the new Exchange Management Console and describe how the improved management interface is simpler for you to use and quicker for you to navigate. We also explore Windows PowerShell, the new administrative interface that provides a rich command-line experience. Attend this session for a look at the significant client improvements and transport rules in Exchange Server 2007.

Monday, April 23, 2007: In this webcast, we cover three critical areas you should consider when using Microsoft Exchange Server 2007: security, accessibility, and management. Learn how Exchange Server 2007 provides built-in protection within your Exchange Server organization. We show you how to establish an ethical firewall using transport rules and how to establish and test local continuous replication (LCR) to provide continuous availability of Exchange Server. Next, we discuss and demonstrate how Exchange Server enables users to access their e-mail from anywhere. In the third part of this session, we look at how easy Exchange Server is to manage. By the end of the presentation, you should have a greater understanding of how to perform many of the administrative tasks that Exchange Server 2007 makes possible.

We describe how the Microsoft Exchange Server Mail Flow Analyzer is a diagnostic tool that walks you through the correct path for troubleshooting problems with e-mail flow, from analyzing symptoms to implementing solutions. Providing easy access to key data sources, this tool automatically diagnoses retrieved data, presents an analysis of the possible root causes, and suggests corrective actions. The Exchange Server Mail Flow Analyzer also helps you manually diagnose data when automation is not possible. Join this session to learn how this tool empowers you to isolate your own issues and to take remedial action to solve them.
