    Thanks for the article.
    A correction:The file is present in gateway_server_rootADMIN fodler, not in siebel_root folder.
    And a question, is there any other way to restore the siebel enterprise.
    Actually i had made some changes in the Siebel server parameter- Table Owner and password, and the siebel environment is not coming up now.
    I have checked the siebns.dat.001, siebns.dat.002 . . . .005, all files and none of the files worked for me.
    Is there any other way to restore the previous coinfiguration?
    Thanks & Regards,
