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?
did you check UPS / power supply ?
perhaps an scheduled task ?
Whats the server make, Dell or HP.
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.
