Do you 1) *know* they are inconsistent because you saw some error,

or do you 2) *expect* them to be inconsistent simply because one 
was down for some time ?

In case of 1) what exactly are the messages, how do you detect
inconsistency ? You mention coda is not mounted, but usual behaviour
in case of conflicts is that volumes are operating in "disconnected mode",
and are read-only. Also files turn into dangling symlinks to indicate 
that something is wrong until they are repaired.

In case of 2) Coda is supposed to do server-server replication
and take care of servers being down. In the case that 
some changes can't be merged into the second server, 
a so called server-server conflict occurs, which needs 
to be resolved manually using the repair tool.
