The Self-Hosted Engine VM automatically shuts down intermittently.

A warning was logged for Data Center status in engine log:

Then SHE went down:
2021-08-23 02:47:34,989-10 INFO ... EVENT_ID: VM_DOWN(61), VM HostedEngine is down. Exit message: User shut down from within the guest

SPM vdsm.log indicates NFS based Storage Domain had connection timeout and became invalid:
