The Service Group view displays the service groups and their dependencies in a cluster. Use the graph and ScreenTips in this view to monitor, create, and disconnect dependencies. To view the ScreenTips, point to a group icon for information on the type and state of the group on the cluster systems, and the type of dependency between the service groups.
Figure: Service Group view shows the Service Group view.
The line between two service groups represents a dependency, or parent-child relationship. In VCS, parent service groups depend on child service groups. A service group can function as a parent and a child.
The color of the link between service groups indicates different types of dependencies.
A blue link indicates a soft dependency.
A red link indicates a firm dependency.
A green link indicates a hard dependency typically used with VVR in disaster recovery configurations.
