    eror log

    do you mean : db2diag.log ?
    this is located by default in ../sqllib/db2dump (unix)
    ../sqllib/instancename/ (windows)
    do : db2 get dbm cfg <--- check diagpath = location of db2diag.log

    I hope you also finished the db2 training - it should be a mandatory prereq before coming to a forum to understand at least what you are doing.
    all messages are in diag.log or in db2dump directory - there are no sysibmadm views for this - you can extract complete messages from diaglog with db2diag tool
    db2diag - db2diag logs analysis tool
