This is a traceflag that was previously documented, but was left undocumented in SQL2000--I wouldn't use it.

You can obtain pretty much the same information by executing SP_WHO in query analyzer to find the blocking process.  You can then see what the process is running by execute DBCC INPUTBUFFER(processidhere)

Actually, it is documented in sql 2000, at least its in books online if you search for "Troubleshooting Deadlocks" in the index, it gives information on how to use dbcc 1204 and where else to look in BOL for help to interpet it. (deadlocks involving locks, deadlocks involving paralellism and deadlocks involving thread).

You can also use performance monitor to help and again books online is a great place to look for specific information on how to track it that way.

Weird, it wasn't suppose to be a documented function.  Maybe they added it in a later BOL....

There was a BOL update in January I think (maybe late December) You can download it from MS, not a small file, but obviously a handy one.  I can hunt down the link if you need it.

It has only 4 trace flags defined 260,1204,2528 and 3205.

Nope, I got the current--just didn't look.  I knew from past information it wasn't "suppose" to be documented.
