Proxmox Host Unexpected Shutdown - Lenovo TS140


New Member
Dec 22, 2019
I have a Lenovo TS140 running Proxmox 6.1-5 with the default 275W power supply, one Crucial 500GB SSD, 20 GB of RAM and one optical drive and the latest release of the Lenovo BIOS.

It has now halted twice with complete system shutdown after roughly 8.5 hours. What's the best plan of attack to determine the culprit? I don't mind replacing stuff but I would like to see the logs actually tell me what the problem is before I replace it
Did you already check your /var/log/syslog ?
