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
I'm having the same problem head on with my orchestration group.
The orchestration group is very convenient.
However, if you set up Pre-Script or Post-Script, the problem occurs.
The problem is that Pre-Script and Post-Script work even if you only update the definition file.
If you set FailOver in SQLServer with Pre-Script, it is very nonsensical to do FailOver in the definition file update.
We would like to see improvements so that you can select only software updates or per deployment.
Or at least a check box to set what types of installations cause node drain
