Use Hostgroup in RA Jobs

If you select a Hostgroup (Agent Group) as Host for a Job of an RA Solution (for example Webservice, FTP,...) and then change to the RA Tab to modify the Job you will see that an error message will appear.
Furthermore the message "<agentgroup> is not an active Agent" on the bottom of the job window and a red light indicate that no connection to the Agent is possible.

This affects all RA Solutions.

This behaviour appears due to the fact thatt Agent Group resolution at design time of jobs is not implemented.

So the workaround is to :

- first choose one of the Agents of the Agent Group as Host
- create the Job
- then choose the Agent Group as Host and save the Job

At execution time the Agent Group will be resolved and the Job will run on one of the Agents assigned to it.
