    Server shutdown

    Our admin server decides to shut itself down every evening at around 7:30pm, about half an hour before the backup starts. This has been happening for 4 days now and every morning the logon wants to know the reason for the abrupt shutdown. The logs do not say anything at all.

    Anybody have any ideas?

    Many thanks

    You checked the HP Management Tools, Dell OpenManage?

    Is it plugged into a UPS, dodgy PSU?

    Is there a broken update that it's trying to run everyday?

    Or maybe someone needs to plug their vacume cleaner.
