Windows Server 2008 R2 - why did your computer shutdown unexpectedly

Hi Guys,

We have a Windows Server 2008 R2 server, every second day we get a message on the screen "why did your computer shutdown unexpectedly?"

It is - as if the server was rebooted, without a proper shutdown.  However, the event-viewer does not show any shutdown event, and programs left open, are still open behind this window.

I gathered that the server did not actually reboot, but that some event caused a "fake" reboot.

The server was fine along and this problem started to occur about a week ago.

It seems to occur any time of day.  And as a result some services won't start up, and we have to do a physical reboot to get the services back online again.

We established that the problem is not hardware related, as it is a virtual server running on HyperV and that other servers are running just fine, without any such events.

Any help will be appreciated.
Regards, Rupert

If the event viewer isnt showing shutdown evetns, how about unexpected service or app crashes in the system logs ? Being a vm there may be additional info the hyperv event logs about issues related to the vm. Hope this helps
