Troubleshooter: Dealing with Privileges During Load Simulations

Is there a way to simulate Exchange Server system loads without having administrative privileges?

Microsoft Exchange Load Simulator (LoadSim), the most common tool for simulating Exchange system loads, requires forest-level administrative privileges, but as Microsoft is quick to point out, you should never run LoadSim in a production forest. Any load simulations you run should happen in a test environment, so setting up administrative privileges shouldn't be a huge obstacle.
