ASA Failover State showing Failed after switch stacking/reboot

So there were 2 Cisco ASA 5000 series boxes and their failover lan and state interfaces were connected via 2 C9300 switches. 

 

FW1>>FailoverLAN>>>>>SW1>>>>>Po1<<<<<<<<<<SW2<<<<<<FailoverLAN<<FW2

FW1>>FailoverState>>>>>SW1>>>>>Po1<<<<<<<<<<SW2<<<<<<FailoverState<<FW2

 

SW1 and SW2 were 2 individual standalone switches. I recently converted each one of the switches into a stack of 2 unit. So now

 

Before:

SW1(standalone C9300)

SW2(standalone C9300)

 

After

SW1(stack of 2 C9300)

SW2(stack of 2 C9300)

 

During this activity, I failed over the HSRP to the other leg and performed the stacking activity,

After restoring everything to normal, I see that the failover state is showing Group1 and Group2 as Active on Secondary unit and Failed on Primary unit.

 

 

Below is the show failover result,

Thank you everyone for your help.

 

The issue got resolved after I run "failover reset" command on the failed unit.
