It could be hardware related, some motherboard bios have hardware logging integrated in them, you could check there and see if there is anything of note. Also, there is an option on most motherboards to determine what happens when power is lost (power back up or stay off). Try configuring this to leave the server offline after a reboot, it might help determine weather some software is causing the restart or not.

Does this happen at the same time each day? If so, you may want to see if there are any cron jobs that run at these times that could be related.

There is no power problem for the server as it is located in Data center with multiple power backups and this doesn't happen at the same time each day. how can i check which is causing the reboot of server by using basic tools.
