What is the impact of sharing a case on CM Synergy?

Hello CMCrossRoads,
I am sharing a case on cm synergy, and would like to understand its impact on the configuration.

Master Database ID:mas
Slave Database ID:slv

An object (version-v6.1.1) is branched out from version v6 in master database. The task is mas#111. The object is transferred to slave database via ftp / shared folder (NOT DCM !). This object is again checked-in in slave database. The task is slv#761, and the object version is slv#6.1.1
This is done due to the failure of DCM internal scripts. I want to understand, once the DCM scripts are active again, will it impact anywhere in configuration conflicts in slave database ? Because, the task mas#111 will be transferred by DCM script, and the associated object version is checked-in in slave database.

Best Regards,
Deepak Bawankar

Hi Deepak,

Once DCM is running and transfers the file version 6.1.1 to your "slv" database, in that slv database, you will end up with both versions as parallels - effectively the union between the picture of "mas" and "slv" in your attachment. If taskjs mas#111 and slv#761 are for the same release, this will show as an expicit conflict if you run Detect Membership Conflicts... for which you can resolve by performing a merge.
