PRTG Server boots overnight



We have a Win11 PC running the PRTG Server 21.11.0. There are occasional overnight reboots of this PC, which appear to be initiated by PTRG.

As the PC is used for other 24/7 processes, I don't want PRTG forcing a reboot. It's not 'planned' from my perspective. How can I disable the auto reboot?

From the windows event log: 1/11/2022 12:04:19 AM 1074 The process C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\shutdown.exe (TECHMON1PC) has initiated the restart of computer TECHPC on behalf of user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM for the following reason: Application: Maintenance (Planned). Reason Code: 0x80040001. Shutdown Type: restart. Comment: Scheduled reboot by PRTG

Thankyou, Rod

Hello Rod,

I think it would be better to just open a support ticket for this, so that we can have a closer look at the issue.


Kind Regards,
