INF: RML Utilities: Turning on Trace Flags

Published Jan 15 2019 11:13 AM 138 Views
First published on MSDN on Dec 12, 2008


When using the RML utilities the logged message or documentation can indicate that use of a trace flag is necessary to change behavior.

More Information

The RML Utilities use command line parameter ( -T ) as a trace flag to alter the utilities behavior.  The term trace flag is a hold over from the SQL Server concept.   Unless otherwise specified the trace flag is NOT a dbcc traceon(##) request.   Instead, add the -T## as a parameter to the command line invocation of the utility.

See: RML Help Documentation - Trace Flags
