        Issue Fixed: UserProfileGenerator load problem for AV and Appsharing scenario
        Explanation: As mentioned in the release notes for the previous OCS 2007 R2 Capacity planning tools release, UserProfileGenerator was generating incorrect load for AV and Appsharing scenarios. This QFE fixes this issue and UserProfileGenerator should generate correct load for various load settings: low, medium & high.

        Issue Fixed: Ocsstress needs a _Total instance
        Explanation: A “_Total” performance counter instance was added to Ocsstress. This new instance makes it easier to monitor Ocsstress performance counters.

        Issue Fixed: Ocsstress should not update the CallsFailed counter for 486 , 603 etc decline specific responses
        Explanation: Ocsstress was wrongfully reporting calls which received valid responses such as 486 busy, 603 decline as calls failed. These calls are no longer marked as failed and are considered a successful call-routing scenario.
