Server Reboot

I was trying to join a admin on his RDP session. I am also an admin. The Server 2008 R2 Standard box immediately rebooted.

I was told the two administrators should not share a session on a server.
 Could that have caused the reboot?
If so why?

Thanks.

Nope, shoudn't have, unless something weird is going on on your server.  You should try it again and see.  I've done that plenty and not had a reboot.  What you're trying to do is not possible with Remote Desktop, though; you must use Remote Assistance to share the screen.  With regular RD, you kick the other user out because you can only have 1 user connected at a time.  You can apparently allow 2 users with this http://www.activeservers.com/Sessions-RDP-Win-2008R2.aspx but they'll have separate sessions/screens.

No, it typically will just disconnect the other session, not reboot

Was it truly an unexpected reboot?  You should check the event viewer for errors.

Is it possible that patches were applied and rebooted the server?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Yes it simply shut down. No warning. I did check the Event Viewer. It only shows the machine went down. Then a few minutes later you see all the services starting up. No reason for the shut down.

Thanks.

But if it were a crash, there you should have an entry that the server restarted unexpectedly.
