    enable minidump for the server.
    install windbg tool on the server, it will show u the cause of the unexpected reboot of the server.

    It may be due to faulty application update or due to system file issue.

    Accepted Solution

    ''server power removed'' and then server power restored'' suggests you have dual PSUs (because it can't record server power removed with just one) but also that the mains supply is bad. It's the sort of message you get when you try to run them off Back-UPS or similar simulated sinewave UPSs.

    I would run diagnostic CD's on the server and start here.
