SQL Server Trace Flag '2543' ?

Is there a way to find out what this trace is, why it's on and what it's tracing? Is it safe that I turn this flag off? Thanks.

It does not seem to be a normal MS set Trace Flag, but does not realy mean a Trace is going on as they can also be used in other ways "Trace flags are frequently used to diagnose performance issues or to debug stored procedures or complex computer systems." from http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms188396(SQL.90).aspx

I have also seen TraceFlags used for certain bug hotfixes but I do not see this one pop up on MS site or Google which I would think it would if common.

If you run DBCC Tracestatus (2543) what are the values?  If all 0 or if Global is not 1 then it is only on your session and is perfectly fine to turn off.  If it is marked as global then someone has set it at your server level and you may want to try and find out what they are using it for.

Hi, thank you for your advise. I will try out DBCC Tracestatus (2543)  and if the Global value is not 1 then I will turn this flag off.
