ABSTRACT
In the above paper,<sup>1</sup>authors have given a technique for the detection of mutual inconsistency among the copies of a file, in presence of network partitioning. This technique involves maintaining a "version vector" with each file in a partition. Here, we show that it is impossible to maintain the version vectors when arbitrary reconfigurations can occur after a network partitioning.

optimistic protocols, Database consistency, fault-tolerance, network partitioning
