    To troubleshoot this further, I'd recommend checking the Azure Activity Log for your VM. This log will provide you with detailed information about the operations performed on your VM and may give you more insight into why your VM restarted.

    @Saiju E

    Just adding more information to the above answer.

    Most of the scenarios are covered here in the documentation.

    Unexpected VM restarts can be caused by various factors, such as:

    1. Host server issues: The VM may have crashed due to the underlying host server experiencing a software failure or a failed hardware component.
    2. Planned maintenance: The VM might have been rebooted as part of routine maintenance workflows orchestrated by the platform.
    3. Host server repair: The VM could be undergoing a reboot due to the underlying host server experiencing unexpected failures.
    4. VM migration: The VM might be migrated to a different host server due to the underlying host server experiencing unexpected failures, which can cause a reboot.

    To determine the cause of the unexpected restart, you can check the Azure Resource Health for your VM. This will provide you with information on the health status of your VM and any recent events that may have impacted its operation. Additionally, you can review the VM's logs and metrics to identify any issues or anomalies that may have contributed to the restart.
