    Does Windows Server 2019 or Server 2019 LTSC has telemetry?

    Regarding "removing Windows Defender" from Server 2019.... in my lab, on my 2019 Servers.. i typically will just run the following powershell command -
    "Uninstall-WindowsFeature Windows-Defender"


    What is left behind from the above items, if only using the uninstall defender feature?
