my server keeps crashing everyday

Dear experts,
My double take 5.0 running on windows server 2000 keeps crashing all most everyday and in event viewer i only get this: "The previous system shutdown at 3:31:46 AM on 2/7/2008 was unexpected. "
source: event log
event ID: 6008
category: none
do you guys know any software I can install to track the events on my machin to find out what is causing the problem?

Many Thanks,

You want to enable at least a kernel level memory dump and analyze that, it could point you to a faulty driver or hardware failure.

Is this on a UPS?  Have you changed the battery lately?  I've seen one of my UPS seemingly do a self test and shut down for an instant once each night.

Hi Leew
it is on UPS but 7 other servers are connected the UPS with no problem.

Newly released Acronis True Image 2019

In announcing the release of the 15th Anniversary Edition of Acronis True Image 2019, the company revealed that its artificial intelligence-based anti-ransomware technology – stopped more than 200,000 ransomware attacks on 150,000 customers last year.

Ok... silly question - since you didn't specify what model UPS, Can you confirm it's on a BATTERY outlet - many UPS include NON-Battery outlets that are meant for things like printers or otherwise non-important devices.  Try swapping outlets with a server that is not having the problem... Then see what happens.  Just to conclusively rule out the UPS.

Actually, to conclusively rule it out, better to plug directly into a wall outlet (via Surge Protector) for a couple of nights.

i downloaded the debuging tool but it hasn't got the Dumpchk.exe!
where can i download it? and how to use it?
i should add that this server sometimes freezes and does nothing and i have to restart it (like this morning).
