ADS trace file

According to user's requirement I have activated trace for ADS according to note 846610. Now user wants the defaulttrace file to see the result. Can anyone suggest from which folder I can get the file? Please help.

<u><b>Please go through this -></b></u>

To find the cause of the problem, send the trace log of the ISR to SAP. The following describes how to create the trace log.

1. Open the Visual Administrator, and choose 'Server' -> 'Services' -> 'Log Configurator'.
2. Click the 'Locations' tab. Select 'ROOT LOCATION' -> 'com' -> 'sap' -> pcui_gp.
3. For 'Severity', select 'All' and save this change.
4. Choose the 'Locations' tab again. Select 'ROOT LOCATION' -> 'com' -> 'sap' -> xss.
5. For 'Severity', select 'Debug' and save this change.
6. Make sure that 'defaultTrace' is written for your log.
7. The J2EE must be restarted.
8. Start your application.
              The system now writes the trace in the log files. You find these log files (for example, defaultTrace0.trc) as follows: 

              Enter the Visual Administrator and select: 'Server' -> 'Services' -> 'LogViewer'.

<b> Alternatively, you will find the log files in your local file system at C:\usr\sap\J2E\JC00\j2ee\cluster\server0\log.</b>

<b> Several files of the defaultTrace type with sequential numbering may be available. Use the most current defaultTrace?.trc.</b>

<u>In addition, see Note 842878 about trace logs. If a problem with an Adobe form occurs, also read Note 846610.</u>

The traces are then written into the "defaultTrace.<index>.trc" files under the ".../server<i>/logs" directory.

<b>Please go through the SAP OSS notes for more details.</b>
