    This morning -just now actually - our SBS 2003 Server just rebooted.

    Nothing at all in the event logs except of course:

    "The previous system shutdown at 10:27:53 AM on 8/17/2004 was unexpected."

    Has been up and running for months with no hiccups like this - except the
    normal auto updating reboots in the dark of the night....

    Where do I begin to look at this?

    Even though it is enabled - no memory.dmp was created.

    System is on an Uninterrupted Power Supply.

  3. Hi Jimbo,

    FWIW, I never let a server automatically update.
    Do you have an UPS attached?

    Do you have a UPS installed?? If not - get one. This will eliminate
    the mains electricity.

    Other than that - check your hardware (CPU fan, PSU etc).

    Yes - as I tried to get in quickly with my second post, we do have a UPS
    installed and functioning.

    No updates were applied previous to the reboot.

  6. As David suggests, I'd look at overheating. It sounds like a hardware
    problem of some kind. Do you have any hardware diagnostic tools you can run
    (maybe a download from the hardware mfr's web site)?

    Yep - working on it now. Overheating should not be an issue - but am
    testing away here!
