It maybe because the group only contains persistent resource(s) (like just a NIC - can you post your (in /etc/VRTSvcs/conf/config)

Do you have any resources configured in the group ?  Is this a new install ?  If you have just added a group to the configuration & trying to online it , have you saved the configuration ?

If this is an old setup ,Mike's assumption is precise ..that's the most probable possibility to have only one persistent resource .. If thats the config, you may need to add a phantom resource in order to detect the service group state

If thats not the case too, post the engine_A.log from the time you are triggering the online command ..

also paste the file & hastatus -sum output ..
