Hi,

I'm contemplating implementing a scheduled restart on my server every night, can anyone advise me if this is recommended or not?

I would not reboot a server every night, perhaps once a week...as part of maintenance schedule.
Any specific reason you would like to reboot every night?

No reason I just feel that the servers performance may be affected if it constantly running, thanks for the advice.

Servers are meant to be running, only reason to reboot a server is after patches or maintenance...
