Prevent Backup info writing to Errorlog

Whenever a backup is taken by default SQL Server will write the detail to the errorlog as shown below.


The information is available in the backupset table on MSDB database. We can achieve this by using the trace flag 3226. Follow the steps below to add this trace flag to sql server startup.

  • Open SQL Server Configuration Manager
  • Go to SQL Server properties and click on Advanced Tab
  • Add Trace flag 3226 as shown below

  • Restart SQL Server service
