We are using Spacewalk to manage /etc/sysconfig/iptables files. The
files are version controlled with the integrated config management
tool. As SW does not (yet) support depended command execution, we are
using remote command execution through osad to reload iptables,
afterwards.

Testing could be done with Spacewalk's monitoring capabilities or
external tools.

Marcus
