MetaFrame Utilities
Smart Reboot Script 2.0
NEW 1-23-04 - NOW WORKS WITH MPS 3.0
Check this out,  I was talking with some guys and they found the fact that we are required to reboot servers out of control and unless there was an elegant way to recycle the servers without affecting users then it was just unacceptable.  Well, from that meeting came this little utility thanks to Don Morse!  I highly recommend it. 
   
What does it do?  Good question, it is the first version of what I see as a smart reboot script.  When the script is launched it will wait for all users to log off the MetaFrame XP server and once there are no users logged on, the server will reboot itself.  Sort of cool, eh?  The next version will be even better and even smarter!!!  All this and more from the minds at DABCC.COM!  ;)
Registry Changer 1.0
KILLER!!!
We are all fans of Rick D's tuning tips now we have a script to apply them and inventory what is already configured.  Once you have selected value in global settings or tuning settings, a file tuneup.vbs is created. (a undo.vbs file is created too which allow you to go back).
Flex Profile Kit v1.1
Jeroen van de Kamp's FlexProfileKit allows you to combine the advantages of Roaming and Mandatory Profiles to make a more stable user environment!  Check it out!!                                      
Enable Force Off-screen Composition.vbs.txt
Get rid of that annoying screen flick when you publish Microsoft Internet Explorer in a MetaFrame session with this killer Visual Basic script.  I highly recommend it!!!!
Basic network boot disk
Killer group of files to help you create a network boot disks in seconds!
AppScape Lockdown Utility
This is a killer little app that lets you turn off the X  in the top right hand corner of an application.  This forces your users to log out of application and desktops and helps prevent against disconnected sessions.
CMPTMAN
(GUI tool to write App Compatibility Flags (registry entries) on WTS. Not for use on Win2K.)
EnumSrv v1.0.6
(This simple GUI application, written by Jeff Reed, uses the NetServerEnum API to enumerate servers for a specified domain. If no domain is specified, the current domain is used. Can enumerate multiple criteria as well, and output can be copied to the clipboard. Can be used to enumerate WinFrame/MetaFrame (for Windows) servers, for example)
MultiShadow
(This unsupported app, written by Ronn Martin, allows you to initiate a shadow of a specific user by passing a username and domain to a command line executable. Very useful as a published app when you want multiple users to shadow one specific user)
QuickShadow
(This app, written by Ronn Martin, is a slick, lightweight GUI utility that allows a user to search for sessions by username (across a server farm) and gives them one click shadow capability over any of the users' sessions)
Tolly Group - TCA Calculator
(This killer spreadsheet will calculate the total cost of application in a Terminal Services environment)

.

Terminal Services Utilities
Remote Desktop Connection - RDP Client.  Great for connecting to remote Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003 servers.
HideCalc - A Tool for Hiding Drive
(This is a real easy to use tool to help in hiding drive mappings from the users view)
Set Default Printer
(This is a great tool to set the default printer for users with no access to the print folder)
Windows 2000 Terminal Services Kernel Tuning Assistant
(This tool is designed to help you tune the kernel on a Windows 2000-based server running Terminal Services in application server mode. On a server where the Processor, RAM, Disk and Network subsystems are not bottlenecks, it may be necessary to tune the Paged Pool/System PTE balance to allow more users to logon to the system.  This spreadsheet contains instructions on how to determine the raw data values and assists with the complex math necessary to arrive at the appropriate value for the SystemPages registry value)
Memory Hogs
(A simple GUI application that displays all the process a a particular server and their CPU load.  A great way to find out what applications are hogging you CPU)
Monitoring Suite 
(CPUMON, DISKMON, FILESMON, NTPMON, PORTMON, and REGMON from www.sysinterials.com.  Great tools to monitor activity on OS subsystems)
