    I thought I remembered reading that this could cause problems.

    Both nodes are online, you move your virtual server (all resources) on Node2
    to Node1. Then you take the VS, on Node2) and it's resources and move them to

    I've tested it and it does cause some issues. I just wanted to find an
    article stating that it was not supported or not recommended.

  2. Just moving groups between nodes should not cause issues...unless you're
    talking about Exchange virtual servers? Having two exchange virtual servers
    online on a single node can cause memory issues...maybe that's what you're
    referring to?

  3. I'm not sure if I understand your question. Both nodes are online, but:
    - How many Resource Groups do you have (and with which application)
    - When do you move which group

    - What are the issues?

    Or: do you mean you are moving resources to another -group-?

  4. John's right (as usual :) ) Look here for more details on setting up a
    2-node cluster within Virtual Server:
