A cluster node can have any number of resource groups. Moving a protected data source to a resource group, between resource groups, or out of a resource group can cause protection job failures. To successfully make any of those changes to resource group membership, perform the following steps:
Stop existing protection of the data source. The data source could belong to a protection group as a single data source on a protected server or as a data source as a member of a resource group.
Begin protection of the data source according to its new status, either as a single data source on a protected server or as a data source as a member of a resource group. This will allocate a new replica for the data source.
Changing the name of a resource group will affect the protection of all data sources in the resource group. To change the name of a resource group, perform the following steps:
Stop protection of the resource group.
Change the name of the resource group.
Begin protection of the resource group under its new name.
