At my place of work we have two Windows 2008 R2 servers, and one of them has started to restart itself every night at 12:13:14 AM. There are no scheduled tasks that could be causing this, nor is it a Windows Update restart.
The machine is virus free (although it has previously been infected with Conficker and FTP.bat
), and so I can't see what it would be that is causing it.
It seems to be a very clean shutdown, so it's not doing any harm, but it's been causing me such grief over the past couple of weeks.
This is what I found in Event Viewer.
The process C:\Windows\system32\shutdo
wn.exe (**name**) has initiated the restart of computer **name** on behalf of user NT AUTHORITYNETWORK SERVICE for the following reason: No title for this reason could be found
Reason Code: 0x800000ff
