The target database, ‘xxx’, is participating in an availability group and is currently not accessible for queries.

Issue –

The target database, ‘xxx’, is participating in an availability group and is currently not accessible for queries. Either data movement is suspended or the availability replica is not enabled for read access. To allow read-only access to this and other databases in the availability group, enable read access to one or more secondary availability replicas in the group.  For more information, see the ALTER AVAILABILITY GROUP statement in SQL Server Books Online. (Source: MSSQL_REPL, Error number: MSSQL_REPL20015)

Cause – This issue occurs when database is participating in Always-On as well as Replication and Primary Server is your publisher server and when you perform the fail over from publisher server databases on Publisher servers are not accessible hence replication job not able to access those databases and it start failing with above error message.
