Dear Microsoft!

We have a problem with Microsoft Server 2019 Essential. Every monday morning the server is shutting down at 6:45 AM.

We have 1 domain and 4 virtual machine on it. What can we do? Theoretically we only use 1 domain.

Thanks for help!

    Where is the hypervisor in this configuration?

    The server licensing rights allow you to install an instance of Essentials on your physical server to run the Hyper-V role (with none of the other roles and features of the Essentials Experience installed), and a second instance of Essentials as a virtual machine (VM) on that same server with all the Essentials Experience roles and features.

    Hello!

    I copied the system log:

    The process C:\Windows\system32\silsvc.exe (servername) has initiated the shutdown of computer Servername on behalf of user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM for the following reason: No title for this reason could be found
    Reason Code: 0x2000c
    Shutdown Type: shutdown
    Comment: Licensing Compliance Service caused a shutdown. Please look at the events under Microsoft > Windows > Server Infrastructure Licensing > Operational for details.

    This is the problem, but I dont know what is the solution. :(

    Sounds like you may have added hyper-v role and four VMs? This is a license violation.

    The server licensing rights allow you to install an instance of Essentials on your physical server to run the Hyper-V role (with none of the other roles and features of the Essentials Experience installed), and a second single instance of Essentials as a virtual machine (VM) on that same server with all the Essentials Experience roles and features.
