Server 2016 Hyper-V Virtual Machine Always Turns Off

If I try to restart a virtual machine, hyper-v always turns them off instead of rebooting.  I have to use the hyper-v manager to manually start every instance if a restart was issued within the VM.  It does not seem to matter what OS the VM is,
it happens with Linux, server 2016 and 2012 R2 instances.

I notice an error:  ‘VM-****’ could not reinitialize. (Virtual machine ID *******-****-****-****-************)

I thought at first it might be permissions but the hyper-v host is in an OU with blocked inheritance.

What might be causing VM’s to fail to reinitialize?
