Encyclopedia Client Model Detail shows the model is in "Waiting for verify" status:

Cause

Model '"GEN SAMPLE MODEL 8 6 T1" is a normal model and is not a child model.
The Encyclopedia Client "Apply" options should only be used on a child model and should not be used on a normal model which is why the error was received after using "Apply -> And Check-In".

Environment

Release : 8.5, 8.6
Component : CA Gen Client Server Encyclopedia

Resolution

Using "Apply -> And Check-In" on the normal model would not have caused any corruption. 
However, the current model status 'W' will need to be changed using update SQL as follows to resolve the download access problem.
update dmdl set model_status='M' where model_name='GEN SAMPLE MODEL 8 6 T1';

NOTE: It is recommended having a recent CSE database backup before running any update SQL on the database.

Additional Information

The fact that Encyclopedia Client "Apply" options can currently be used on a normal model is something that Gen Engineering will look at preventing with an update in a future release.
