I remember when ISA Server 2006 SP1 was released that one of my favorite new features was the introduction of the Test Button. This Test Button allowed me to test my rules before I deployed them. While there were some limitations to the Test Button feature, there were still a number of times when the Test found something wrong before I actually deployed the rule.
In a recent article by Yuri Diogenes, he points out that there have been some interesting enhancements to the Test Button routine with the introduction of pathping as part of the test.
