I need Help. My Dedicated Proxmox Server reboots Randomly at 1-4 AM. I dont find the Problem. Ps: Please tell me what Logs you need and i post it.
first take a look at the `journalctl -r` output (the complete system journal in reversed order .
If that does not go back far enough (only present since boot) - you need to enable persistent journalling
i.e. you need to run:
mkdir /var/log/journal
systemctl restart systemd-journald

if you don't have a persistent journal you can also check /var/log/syslog* for hints to what causes the reboots (however somtimes the journal contains more information if a host crashes)

I hope this helps!
