When you install a MEM agent you can provide a group name to which it should be associated.
If a server is part of a replication chain and the group already exists then it will be added to that group.
If a server is part of a replication chain and the group is not known to MEM then it will give it a name "replication X" or similar which is rather non-descript. The name may then need changing later and this needs to be done by hand.

How to repeat:
See above.

Suggested fix:
When installing the agent using scripting on several replication chains the user may know the name of the chain and wish to provide that information to MEM as a "hint"  GROUP_A for example.  If the server is part of an already known replication group then it does not make sense to do anything other than add the server to that group. However, if the server has no known group to MEM, then giving this hinted name rather than the default name currently used saves some time and prevents the need to rename the replication group some time later.

So please consider adding some sort of hinting feature to the installer of the form:


If not provided MEM behaves as now.
