Error: Recovery plan contains protection groups that are in use by another recovery plan that is either currently running

Generally seen when the recovery has failed but the database has not been updated. Always backup the database before making changes!

1) Stop the SRM service on both recovery and protected site.
2) Connect to the database server for the recovery site SRM.
3) Backup database.
4) In SQL Management Studio, edit the table [pdr_planproperties]
- change STATE to readyReceiving (from groupsInUse).
- change PEERSTATE to readySending.
5) Edit the table [pdr_protectiongroup]
- change STATE to 6.
6) Start SRM service on both SRM servers.
