Question about Dell PowerEdge 1800 Server
Every night at 9 PM the sever shutdown with an error in event log saying "The previous system shutdown at XXXXXXXX on XXXXXXX was unexpected"
If the log says that the shutdown was unexpected, then I'd suspect a power outage at that time. If you're using a managed PDU, check to see if that outlet (or the whole pdu) is set to power cycle. If you have more then one power supply, I'd recommend plugging them into different pdu circuits. If you're pluged in to a UPS, suspect that the UPS is cycling and that there's no UPS management service running. If you're plugged into (yikes) the wall, suspect building power.
