Hi,
One of our admins has deleted a SQL Job from our SQL 2005 Server (Std).
I would like to know if it is possible to find out which admin deleted the job and if also possible when?
Regards Craig

unless you analyse the transaction log backup of the msdb database (if you had implemented that), you cannot find that out, AFAIK

If you have not implemented sysjobs trigger so far and msdb database transaction log backup than right now there is no change to look at it if it has been done in past but you can do it as a future precautions
