After you finish recovering VMs, you can end ransomware recovery by stopping the plan.

After you end a ransomware recovery plan, it reverts to the ready state. Ending the recovery plan deletes all staging snapshots, removes running VM instances in the recovery SDDC, and resumes snapshot retention schedules for VMs in the plan.
Note: You cannot end a recovery plan for ransomware recovery if any VMs are in validation or staged. Cancel or recover VMs in those states before ending the plan.
