How to display the HMC iqyylog.log

In this post I give you a hint how to display a log which is usually used by IBM support to identify a serious hardware error. Such information usually can be found in HMC log called iqyylog. Usually, when you get that kind of hardware error, you involve IBM support. Very likely, they will ask for PE debug data. There is a way how to display the log by yourself. Remember, such information is very technical. But maybe you find it useful.

  • First, you need to create the hscpe account on the HMC (if you haven’t done it). You can find the process here.
  • Log in to the HMC GUI under hscpe account.
  • In the Service Management menu you find three new options available


If you click on View Management Console Logs, you are going to see the log.
