View a history log on the iSeries

We just recently purchased an iSeries. We are working as quickly as possible to convert from s36 environment to native 400. Is there any way we can view a history log like what we had on our old s36.

The iSeries 400 is rich with history and job logs. Each job on the iSeries produces a job log. Normally, if a job fails, the system default is to put the job log in the QEZJOBLOG out queue. There is also a robust history log that can be accessed using the command DSPLOG. There are several parameters that can be used to specify the date, time and user.
