Terminal Services Load Simulation Microsoft Windows Server 2003

I would like to simulate load on a terminal server for performance tweaking.

Microsoft recommends Roboclient and Roboserv, but I can't find them anywhere.  Microsoft states that they are with the Windows Server 2003 Deployment Kit. I'm losing my mind running around in circles on TechNet.

Source: "These books and tools are available in browsable form on TechNet and as free downloads from the Microsoft Download Center."  http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/techinfo/reskit/deploykit.mspx

Please assist me finding these tools or providing a different free tool to do the same.
Thanks.

'Verify that the program to be upgraded is installed'   on my XP machine, is this designed to be installed only on the terminal server?

Frankly, I'm not sure, but it makes sense that these tools are to be used on server only.

Tried it on the terminal server, this looks to be a hotfix for Terminal Server Capacity Planning toolkit.  Without the toolkit installed already this install fails.  Any idea where to find the TSCP toolkit main install?

Hi!

Apparently it's part of Resorce kit, and not available for free download, unfortunately. I will try to find this tool on internet and post link.

Hi again.

I don't know how I have missed that. :S The tool is called tsscaling.exe and it is a part of Resoruce kit which can be downloaded here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9d467a69-57ff-4ae7-96ee-b18c4790cffd&displaylang=en
