How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Do not run Server Group's node drain scripts when installing definition updates

If you define a server group and use Windows Defender you might want to update those definitions as early as possible.

Currently, those definition updates trigger the node drain and resume skripts, which can lead to service downtime.
Additionally, the updates can only be installed during maintenance windows.

I want you to
a) add an option in deployment in software update groups to always ignore maintenance windows
b) add an option in deployment in software update groups to ignore server group settings

    Or at least a check box to set what types of installations cause node drain
