Someone just launched BACKUP LOG WITH TRUNCATE_ONLY for his database.
( I know, I shouldn't have provided dbo auth, but you know how that goes )

Apparently the default trace doesn't record this event :-(

In the instances errorlog file it only states:
Message
BACKUP LOG WITH TRUNCATE_ONLY or WITH NO_LOG is deprecated. The simple recovery model should be used to automatically truncate the transaction log.


[msdb].[dbo].[backupset] Doesn't record this breach Angry

Of course, regular scheduled log backups fail after this event because of the lack of a valid full backup.

For now I've launched a trace to capture "audit backup/restore events", so I'll know the origin by tomorrow Cool

The question is: Where and how could I have discovered / prevented this ?
