Tracking users in 2005is there any way in SQL Server 2005 to find out who cancelled/disabled the maintenance job(i.e backup jobs)?
Someone at work diabled the jobs and i am trying to find out who did tht thanks
I don’t think this kind of history is stored in msdb anywhere.<br /><br />first order of business would be to lock the server down so this doesn’t happen again. [<img src=’/community/emoticons/emotion-5.gif’ alt=’‘ />]<br /><br /><hr noshade size="1">www.elsasoft.org <br />
In SQL Server 2005, you can use DDL triggers to track a lot of similar activity, but you have to write your own code. This information is not stored by default. ————————————————————–

As explained there is no way to retrieve such information, either you have to use third party tools to chekc the transaction log for events (which is a laborious job to perform), also you might need to deploy such DDL triggers which is available since SP2 for SQL Server. Satya SKJ
