Is there an application I can run to stress test my network and file servers? I want to make sure they will not die under stress when we go live with 2000+ users. Is there a product that can do this or will we need to script something? If that is the case are there any whitepapers or guides on setting this up?

Look for an application called “Load Runner”. It should do what you need.
