Hi team, we had a dozen odd production servers reboot during the day as a result of Windows patches being pushed via SCCM, however we have maintenance windows defined to allow the reboot to take place between 10pm-4am on a Saturday night/Sunday morning
From one of the affected host, which log file will be able to tell what specifically caused the machines to reboot, perhaps these servers were part of another maintenance window etc?
Please help.

Have you checked that particular deployment?  Maybe someone changed it so that it bypasses the maint window.  This may be the log you are looking for as well:

RebootCoordinator.log – Provides information about the process for coordinating system restarts on client computers after software update installations.

If that's not it, take a look at this one:

Smsts.log – General location for all operating system deployment and task sequence log events.

Let me know if you have any issues, thanks!
