Hyper-V, How do I fail back?

My environment is Windows Server 2012 R2 and a domain of the same level and a forest of the same level.  All 2012 R2.

My two servers (my hyper-v hosts) are identical.  Same everything.  I have replication set up between Server 1 over to Server 2.

Over the weekend, the storage on Server 1 died and I failed over to server two.  This happened at night, on a weekend and my replications are five mins so when I failed over, it wall went perfectly.

After some work this AM, I have my storage on Server 1 fixed and I want to fail back.  

How do I fail back?  Is it simply a matter of Right Click, Replication, Reverse Replication and it will all fail back to the primary and turn off my secondary?  It seems that simple, but I want to make sure.

Reverse replication will initiate the replication process back to the primary server.

Once caught up you can initiate a Planned Failover to move primary operations back to the primary host. For obvious reasons this should be done at a time when changes are minimal.
