Handling Error – “Database page read failed verification due to – 1018 error” in EDB file

Exchange Server users and the network administrators of an Exchange Server workhouse often face various EDB database errors that often haunt users. Whenever users see such error messages, they feel the need to regain access to their important data. This situation of inaccessibility of data becomes serious when administrators are faced with the massive situation of data loss. Often the situation of EDB file loss arises when administrators lose important data in EDB files for various reasons.

EDB files are often affected by corruption for a number of reasons such as incorrect server shutdown, virus invasion and physical damage to storage media, abrupt application shutdown, hardware failure etc. In multiple situations, when Exchange Server database file gets corrupted or damaged, MS Outlook restricted access to the email, calendar etc. From the user. This happens because MS Outlook is also unable to retrieve data from the EDB database on your Exchange Server.

Since MS Outlook also does not have access to important user data from the EDB database, the problem becomes even greater because the user cannot continue his communication with his customers or other users. This sudden interruption of communication can also delay planned business projects in a workhouse. What if you don’t have a backup of the required file and the only way to access your important one is to access the EDB file.

Given a practical work situation, when you encounter the following error while reading an EDB file:

“Database page read verification failed because of a -1018 error” (page checksum mismatch)

Compared to this error, -18111 (hexadecimal 0xFFFFF8ED) stands for JET_errFileNotFound and stands for File Not Found. The occurrence of this error message indicates that the verification of reading the database page has failed because some page checksum does not match. This specific database page is a file in Exchange Store and the error indicates that this individual file (possibly priv1.edb) is corrupt. Due to the occurrence of this error message, users may encounter the following issues while working on their EDB file.

1.Cannot send or receive emails

2. Cannot start MS Outlook on the computer

Failed online backups and display -1018 checksum error

4.Online defragmentation report generates a -1018 mismatched checksum error

You can easily solve these problems. To do this, you can do one or more of the following:

1.If you encounter the -1018 error code in the event description, check for possible solutions offered by Microsoft

2.Run system diagnostic test

Migrate to a different system or try different hardware

4.Upgrade disk controller BIOS and firmware

5. repair EDB file with the eseutil / P and eseutil / D and then isinteg fix

Although Microsoft offers many tools for recovering EDB files, these files almost never work. Therefore, the ideal way to repair corrupt EDB files is by using a third party Exchange repair tool. With Kernel for Exchange Server recovery software, you can repair EDB file flawlessly and access inaccessible data with MS Outlook.
