Domain Controller keeps Restarting Randomly

Domain Controller keeps Restarting Randomly

I have Windows Domain Controller 2008, that keeps restarting randomly. when I checked the system log, I found this :

The process wininit.exe has initiated the restart of computer MYDC04 on behalf of user  for the following reason: No title for this reason could be found
 Reason Code: 0x50006
 Shutdown Type: restart
 Comment: The system process 'C:\Windows\system32\lsass.exe' terminated unexpectedly with status code 255.  The system will now shut down and restart.



This is Physical server, I checked it and did not see any apparent hardware issue, no amber or red lights.

I checked if there is any scheduled task and could not find one.

I really cannot pinpoint the root cause.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks
