Issue : I am facing error “The remote procedure call failed. [0x800706be]” while trying to view SQL Services from SQL Server Configuration Manager.
Steps I perform to resolve the issue, Seems to be a WMI error :-
1) If using Window Server 2008 & above, Run command from command prompt to verify WMI repository : winmgmt /verifyrepository
If you got any error, Please contact your OS team for WMI rebuild.
2) Recompiled the MOF file –> mofcomp.exe "C:Program FilesMicrosoft SQL Server90Sharedsqlmgmproviderxpsp2up.mof"
3) Re-registered the SQL Server provider DLL –> regsvr32 "C:Program FilesMicrosoft SQL Server90Sharedsqlmgmprovider.dll"
4) Your issue should be resolved now. If you still face same issue that means there are chances that you may be running with different versions of SQL Server. If yes, Please try to patch SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) with latest available Service pack.
