I want to look up what user rebooted a server, and what message was left as to why.  We have a server that has rebooted two weekends in a row, and i just need to track down why.  I have access to the logs, i just want to be sure what i'm looking for.  I can track back to the last time it was rebooted without issue, i just want to be sure i'm looking at the right logs.

MS Win 2008 std sp2, 64 bit.

I wrote a script to run these commands on a weekly basis and it emails me a report.

Windows 2003 server and below the uptime.exe from Micorsoft produces a nice report but in Windows 2008 that program fails to run.

Thx for that info!  If I can find the time i'll add some info to one of my powershell scripts to grab all the server uptime and maybe add it to our dashboard.
