  • Hi

    OpsMgr can't tell you why the shutdown was unexpected - it has alerted you to the fact that a domain controller crashed but you'll need to look at the windows event logs (start with application and system) on the server to see if you can ascertain why it happened. It could be a dodgy driver, someone has installed software on the server that is causing the problem, a hardware issue ... the logs will have more detail.

    Cheers

  • Hi,

     

    Please monitor this domain controller and see if this issue will re-occur. In addition, check if other computers encountered this issue as well.

     

    Thanks.

  • As far as I recall, that event does not show up in the DC event logs, it shows up in the system log after the machine reboots.

    This is not an Operations Manager question, it's about troubleshooting Domain Controller issues. I would suggest you ask the question in the AD forums.
