Server Groups - Increase Length of Drain and Resume Scripts
The drain and resume scripts are currently limited to 512 characters each. I know there is currently a request to add native cluster aware patching support, but it would be a great start to simply increase the size limit of the scripts. It doesn't seem like there is a safe way to "drain" a server from a cluster to prep it for patching in a mere 512 characters, especially considering that we have to use up some of those characters to return the correct exit code.
We can run some pretty complex and lengthy scripts in configuration items and baselines, so this seems like it should be a pretty simple enhancement.
I couldn't agree more and this was feedback I gave on the main Server Groups User Voice item which is now closed.
I would argue the better solution here is to integrate this into the existing script feature. It's kind of a travesty that when Server Groups was rebuilt 'from the ground up' they didn't do that already.
