transaction_isolation should not be "SERIALIZABLE" in Group Replication.

How to repeat:
When starting Group Replication, the transaction_isolation should not be "SERIALIZABLE". However, this is not mentioned in any place of Chapter 17 Group Replication, especially in https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/group-replication.html. It is recommended to add this information in the document.

Thanks for your comment! This information is actually in the Group Replication chapter in the Limitations topic here:


However, I have had feedback from other users who missed information that was in this topic. So I have moved it to a more prominent location right after the Getting Started material. This should increase its visibility and help users find it at setup time which is when it is needed. I hope that helps.
