It probably crashed. When you reboot or shut a server down, you get a box where you can insert the reason for your action. That gets logged in the event viewer so others know why the server was shutdown or rebooted. If a server crashes the reason won't be known, so you can then enter that again for the logs.

Anyway, Server 2000 is very old and hasn't been supported for years. Also Server 2003 is no longer supported. You should really replace the OS.

Nice Rindi,


from your answer, I came to know that, to record a reason in the event log it is asking the reason.

thanks a lot. Because I am alone working today.

FWIW... I've seen it happen on 2008, too. After doing Windows Updates then choosing Restart Now. It happens sometimes only.

That is the shutdown event tracker at work. Personally I disable it but it is the default action.
