Exchange laod test tool

We're trying to implement a fall back for our exchange server to a Virtual server. I can get our server up on the virtual machine in a test environment and it all works but I was wondering is there any type of tool to tell me if this VM session will work for 10 users 50? Is there anything I can run to simulate that. I can't run the VM during the day if it could effect operations and need someway of testing. I found some Microsoft utilities like loadgen and jetstress. one on;y works on 2007 and newer and the other is giving me some sort of instance error.

Hi,

You can use LoadGen to simulate load on a 2003 Exchange server, this can be completed by installing the 2007 management tools onto a new server and then running LoadGen.

See the following post for more information.

Good Luck.

   It won't let me install the 2007 management tools on a 2003 server. The error says it detects a previous installation of exchange and to remove it. That would negate the purpose of my test.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

The tools have to be installed upon a new 2008 server, i.e. a spare test VM.
