  • I'd check the system event log for errors. Also try again from a Safe Mode boot.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    Have you configured you server to track shutdown/reboot. If not please "Configure Shutdown Event Tracker on the Local Computer"

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc732119.aspx

    As we know, shutdown Event Tracker provides historical context to the reasons for shutting down a server.

    Also I suggest you check event viewer and search for Event IDs 6008 or 1074 for this unexpected shutdown/reboot. Thorough checking of event viewer gives us clue to troubleshoot this issue.

    Have you had any schedule in task scheduler for this server reboot.

    To Stop automatic restart of server please un-check the marked option in below snap shot. Also try to boot server in safe mode and check for the similar kind of issue? Another useful step is go to run and type msconfig|startup|uncheck startup items which are not required.

    Best Regards,
