I am looking to understand whether or not there is a way to prevent Azure servers from automatically reboot?
I recently created a new server to run a migration from, but the server did a reboot in the middle of the night halting the migration.
This is a rather lengthy migration and we need to make sure a reboot like this does not happen again, since the migration will not automatically resume.
I do suspect the first reboot happened due to windows update rolled out some updates on the new server and then did a following reboot, but I was wondering if Microsoft have some kind of system in place, that periodically reboot servers whether you like it or not.
Short answer is no. This is due to a number of reasons: - Planned maintenance of the host infrastructure. - Windows updates - Physical fault in the Fault Domain (ie. physical rack VM is running on) - Unplanned maintenance - Host storage-related issues
