Probably your repstatus shows

Probably your repstatus shows DCM is in use (you can run "vxrlink -g diskgroup rlink_name status" where you can get rlink name from "vxprint -P" to confirm DCM is being used if vradmin repstatus does not show this)

In this case you need to run "vradmin -g <diskgroup> fbsync <rvg>" and this will sync the changes (using DCM replay) from the new primary (at your secondary) site to the old primary and so make your old primary a secondary - then when the DCM replay is complete, you can switch back to you original Primary with in VCS/GCO.

You can also initiate DCM replay from the VCS java GUI if you prefer by right clicking on RVGPrimary resource and choose actions and then fbsync.
