hey guys Im trying to get access to the messages to trouble shoot and issue, problem is I cant access it at all. I can see messages in 3 places
/etc/messages.5, /etc/log/messages.5 and /etc/log/messages. I can read/open the /etc/messages.5 but both /etc/log/messages.5 and /etc/log/messages
I cannot open/read/copy via cifs. I have full admin rights to all these files I've even tried using rdfile /etc/log/messages but it says the file does not exist.
please help regards.

The messages files you want to review are in /etc (/etc/messages, /etc/message.0, etc). If you want to go back further in time you might also be able grab one out of a snapshot.
The messages files in /etc/log (/etc/log/messages) are actually symbolic links to /etc (/etc/messages), which from a client perspective over CIFS will seem broken.
