    Server 2012 R2 shuts down overnight


    Long story, but here goes:

    Got a custom build server - Gigabyte H87M-D3H, i5-4570, 16GB RAM. It's now running 2012 R2, but it was running 2012 initially and had exactly the same problems, which suggests hardware issues.
    Nearly every night, during the night sometime, the server crashes off, and needs to be started again with the power button.
    I first suspected a power issue because nothing shows in the event log.
    But after connecting it to a UPS and replacing the power supply (with a Corsair CX430), the issues continue.
    I also get the odd BSOD - dump attached.
    I've checked the following:
    - Checked, rechecked and replaced all sata cables
    - Scanned/chkdsk all HDDs
    - Memtest for a few hours
    - sfc /scannow
    - UPS and new PSU as mentioned above
    What else can I try?

    Get rid of this Acronis software, and my educated guess is that you will be free and clear:

    0: kd> lmvm tib_mounter
    start             end                 module name
    fffff800`01374000 fffff800`013a4000   tib_mounter   (deferred)             
        Image path: \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\tib_mounter.sys
        Image name: tib_mounter.sys

        Translations:     0000.04b0 0000.04e4 0409.04b0 0409.04e4
    It's a 0x7a stop.

    If that doesn't do the trick, test with a different hard drive if possible.

    Thanks, will try, but pretty sure it was happening before Acronis was installed.

    The system has 6 HDDs - change the boot drive?

    Are you using any usb 3.0 ports, I've seen issues with external usb 3.0 hard drives blue screen Windows Server 2012 just by being plugged in. A fix was to upgrade the usb 3.0 drivers.

    Thanks EricS.
    Nope, not using any USB devices - 1 x PS2 keyboard and that's it.

    By any chance are you familiar with event viewer?

    Yep, nothing in System or Application logs at the time of the crashes.
