    Here you can check 2 log files but i am not sure what exactly you are looking for.

    when you issue the command startsap.. it will clearly shows step by step logs there it self. what exactly system is doing and where it checking ABAP database, Database is runing or not ruinng then it will try to starting the ABAP databse later on it will show try to start saposcol and then try to Start SCS(if you have java) other wise it will show trying to start DVEBMGS00 etc.. etc...

    i am just wondering apart from the above log what exactly you want to check.

    any way you can check alert.log for the DB related stufff and you can have a look at Startsap.log file file at /home/sidadm directory.

    hope the above info will shed some light on your query.
