I have a basic shutdown.exe -r script that  I use to auto reboot a 2008 server.  Ever time the reboot happens, I log on to that server, there is the pop up asking to put a description why the server rebooted.

Doesn't anyone have a way that I can reboot the server automatically without getting the pop message ever morning.

Have you tried using:

shutdown /r /t 10 /c "Because I wanted to reboot" /dp:00:00

i.e. restart, timeout 10 secs (or whatever), add a command, reason = planned, code = 0.0

List of codes is in the help for shutdown, shutdown /?

If you are already doing this I think there is a group policy which requires a request for reboot information that could be asking regardless of the fact you have supplied the info. already?
