+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1766513 +++
Description of problem:
MCO added a "force overwrite" file to allow people to fix things when they know they wanted to synchronize to the current state. However, persisting it on disk by default thereafter wasn't explicitly intended - it will silently mask errors.
The flag is much better as a "one time" intervention.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a skew in configs (like certs recovery)
2. fix the above using the validation file
3. re-create the skew and notice the error is not bubbled up
errors being shadowed
errors properly bubbled up
Waiting on 1766513 to backport.
