Hi there,
I am running Profiler trace for tracking login attempts and strangely found that the differential backup job which is called from maintenance plan has been logged as 'SA' in Login Name column of profiler trace but however the NTusername is still the service account which is configured to be used by SQL Agent.

Could you help me out why the Login Name was called as SA rather than the service account name in Login Name column?

Thanks in advance!
