Does anyone know how to enable Trace Flag T1118 as a start up parameter?

What I did -- I open SQL Server Configuration Manager and on SQL Server Service - go to Property -advance tab - Startup parameter. I entered "-T1118" to existing parameter.

-dE:\ServerName\MSSQL\DATA\master.mdf;-eE:\ServerName\MSSQL\Log\ERRORLOG;-lE:\ServerName\MSSQL\DATA\mastlog.ldf; -T1118

Is above method correct to set up trace flag as startup parameter? Can anyone please confirm?

Thanks in Adv.

the new start up parameter should not have any spaces after the semicolon in the text:

the -T#### will be ignored otherwise.
