-618  The Server has detected an inconsistent database. Usually this means that the number of entries in a container does not match the number stored in the container’s entry
This message indicates an eDirectory problem.  To repair this object, I did the following:

3) Clicked the monkey wrench icon to perform a single object repair
4) Selected repair single object –> Start repair
After performing these steps the -618 error persisted, so I logged into iMonitor on the eDirectory R/W replica at:
I performed steps 2-4 on the R/W replica and I was then able to view the Distribution List membership and verified C316 was listed as a member.  The -618 error was gone.
