Allow single systems to exclude single patches from an update group.
We would like the capability to exclude a single patch from a specific computer. Right now, we have to exclude a server from all patches, manually patch it, or create a totally new deployment because a 3rd party vendor requires patch exclusions for their product to function. It would be a whole lot easier if there was a way to exclude a group of specific patches from singular systems or collections.
+1 Just read some existing ideas on how to improve the server patching when a vendor requires a patch not to be installed on some systems only. I found some ideas interesting but may be not really feasible when there's a need to be more granular in the configuration of exclusions.
Allowing updates exclusions on collections would be ideal.
This requirement is very useful when patches contain bugs that only affect individual systems. This can prevent a patch which is useful for all other systems from having to be withdrawn from all systems.
