Servers can not be moved between server-groups, but if you want to e.g.
move ServerA from sg1 to sg2, you have to shut it down, delete it on sg1,
re-create on sg2 and start it again.

While many operations to an AS will happen on server group level,
monitoring of all servers in a group will be an operation on (RHQ) group
