Proxmox VE 7 Unexpected Reboot


New Member
Jul 2, 2021
My hosted PVE server either rebooted itself or crashed overnight and I'm not sure why. All of my Windows vms are showing the unexpected shutdown pop-up at login. Anyone who can help me decipher the PVE syslog for clues? Around July 03 00:57:06 there is a "--Reboot--" logged. Just before this, it was doing checks of the raid arrays. Did it decide to reboot gracefully or was this a hard crash? I'm concerned that the array may be corrupt or something. Thanks in advance!

Many error on your syslog file:


This VM need an efi disk in is stuff.

Maybe a missconfiguration on network config on the host node ?

Reboot :
It's seems that the last ROOT action are launched with root' crontab.

Check if a reboot task is'nt referenced in root'crontab ;)

Good luck :)
