Novell eDirectory all versions


  • 618 errors viewing the properties of an object in ConsoleOne or iManager
  • 618 errors on obituaries in a deleted entry state
  • Report Sync Status shows 618
  • DSTrace shows a 618 on an object


  • For versions of eDirectory and later, start DSREPAIR/ndsrepair in advanced mode with -A and run a local database repair

Additional Information

If 618 errors are seen while viewing the properties of an object or in DSTrace, look in DSBROWSE (NetWare only) or iMonitor to see if the object has an unknown back link.
