A VCS Service group (application) should not be linked to the local hostname or nodename.

A virtual IP address should be part of SG config which will fail over with rest of resources in the SG.
This virtual IP address can be linked to a hostname in DNS or local /etc/hosts files.

Please see this sample diagram for a typical Service Group configuration (It applies to most database and application service groups):
