Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

User messages, System and workstation msgs, Critical system messages, Job logs and system output, System journals and History logs are all maintained by using the cleanup job which can be scheduled to run each day. You can specify the number of days to keep for all of the above by using the GO CLEANUP menu providing you have authority or you could try the CHGCLNUP command.

    The question title says history logs are not getting displayed, but the question text refers to the joblog for a certain iSeries. Which is it? Is it a history log? Or is it a joblog? Is it a history log for the entire system? Or is it a joblog for a particular job? (Or all all joblogs gone from one system?) Maybe nothing changed -- maybe the history log was simply cleaned up during normal processing. Or if it was a joblog, maybe none was generated. Or maybe someone ran DLTF against the history log files. Or maybe someone ran CLROUTQ against QEZJOBLOG. Or maybe lots of things happened. First we need to know exactly what the question is. Tom

    Hi Tom, sorry to have confused the question. Yes Am referring to the history logs of the entire system. Just a small query. By any chance the history logs dissappearing relate to an user profile. As our technical lead said it is because with respect to user profile.

    By any chance the history logs dissappearing relate to an user profile. There are only two common ways for QHST* files (history logs) to disappear within some relationship to a particular user profile. The files could be deleted by that user. The relationship would be that act of deletion. The user profile might have an *EXCLUDE authority to the files. The relationship would be an inability for that user to see the physical files, potentially making them to seem to 'disappear'. Other users might have no problem seeing the files. I suppose there are other possibilities, but those are the two that come to mind that include 'relating' to a user. If there is some other kind of relationship, please describe it more. Tom
