dbcc traceon (1204, 3605)

Or

Set startup parameters:

-T1204
-T3605

and restart the sql server.  This method is necessary if you want the trace flag to stay on after restarts

Set startup parameters: will the below command work?

sqlservr –d"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Data\master.mdf" –T1204

sqlservr –d"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Data\master.mdf" –T3605

Guys,
I run the dbcc traceon (1204,3605)

But I did not get any log return regarding the deadlock even the server has quite significant number of blocking\locking

Blocking/locking is NOT the same as deadlocking

so,
is that mean trace flag 1204 will only capture deadlock information?

yes, that is its purpose.  Sp_Lock will show you locking info, and sysprocess as well as sp_who and sp_who2 will show you blocking related data
