There is /var/adm/syslog/. For the SD utilities there is /var/adm/sw/.
There are also logs for cron, lp, mail, utmp, etc in other places.

User applications can have their own logs.

Hi,
/var/adm/syslog/syslog.log is the main log file.If the system reboot, the new log file starts and previous one will be become Oldsyslog.
Also check logs in /var/opt/resmon/log dir.
dmesg command also shows error messages if any.
