Windows 2003 server shutting down on its own!

Okay this question has a pretty Urgent matter behind it.  My customers windows 2003 server which is a 2nd server on their network...basically just file storage...keeps rebooting on its own.  I can't pinpoint it in the event log so I'm posting that for some to read.

But today, 5-4-05, at just before high noon, the machine powered off and back on...all power cables are good, it is a dual hotswap power supply machine with twin battery backups...so power did not go off to the server.

the logs can be found here. http://www.nti-llc.net/cfslogs/

I've been over these and the only thing I can see is the virus scan generating a ton of errors.
Thanks!

hmm, sounds like mcafee could be the culprit, but it is virusscan 8.0i so the Volumn shadow issue should be irrelevant.

This is baffling...

wow totally off from my original idea.  but I just called dell and we narrowed it down to "3.3 volt error" in a DSET report.  Whatever DSET is but basically I had a loose power cable on the mother board.  The server has not rebooted yet as I am typing this and the office has gone back to work.  So this may be resolved due to the loose mainboard cable.

as for the virus scan errors, mcafee support has me on hold.  It sounds like they do have a fix for it.  If so, I'll award points accordingly based on comments received...since this question was actually a 2 item issue.

okay since it was a two part question, the other half was mcafee having issues, I called and they do indeed have a fix for that.  But this isnt' why the server was powering off.

The server was powering off because of a faulty power distro board from the back of the hot swap power supplies.

Thanks for the help!
