Server shuts itself off RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All 

    My server ( Windows Server 2012) it's only for application testing purposes.

    And I'm backing up all my servers on it. Two days ago there was an update required restarting. And after I restarted the server  turned off next day when I came to my work I turned it on manually, But today while I'm checking 

    My backup I found the server turned off again for the second time.

    Any help, please.

  • I'd check the system or application event logs.

  • Hi,

    Please open System, check the activation state and make sure it is activated. If it an evaluation version, system may shutdown itself once the evaluation period is expired. 

    In general, Windows update may schedule a system shutdown to complete the update installation/configuration. You may open check Windows Update settings:
    Control Panel – System and Security – Windows Update – Change Settings

    If the problem persists, please check event viewer to see if any relate event has been logged. Besides, is there any error/message prompted when shutdown? 

    Best Regards,
