Then a Note pop-up shows the trace file is generated under:
$RDBMS_ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/log/

Example:

The trace file is located at /global/oracle/prdjp12/db/tech_st/11.1.0/rdbms/log/prdjp12_ora_21163_SYSADMIN.trc

However, the trace file is generated under:
$RDBMS_ORACLE_HOME/admin/<SID>_<HOST>/diag/rdbms/<SID>/<SID>/trace
