The remote procedure call failed [0x800706be]

I just completed installation of SQL Server 2008 R2, which seemed to be a success. But when I opened Sql Server Configuration Manager and clicked on SQL Server Services I got this error:



The remote procedure call failed [0x800706be]

Does anyone know why?

I noticed that TCP/IP is disabled (see attached image). Could that be the reason? I changed it to Enabled, then restarted Windows, but that did not help. I did notice that an infer message appears first "Requesting info from WMI provider..."

Hi, according to your error description, it seems that your WMI provider may have not installed correctly. You can repair it by following these steps (as an administrator):

Open the Command Prompt, run the following repair command:

mofcomp "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Shared\sqlmgmproviderxpsp2up.mof"

If you get the FILE NOT FOUND message, please run your SQL Server installation media and repair you shared features.

Hi,

Which edtion of SQL 2008 R2 did you install?

Some install with TCPIP disabled by default. Change to enabled and restart SQL is usually sufficient. When you restarted windows, did you check that SQL started? Or is its startup set to manual?

I think it's the Developer edition.

I had changed MSSQLSERVER to TCP/IP Enabled before I posted the question. I then tried the same with SQLEXPRESS, so now all three instances have TCP/IP Enabled. But still the same message.

I have not yet tried executing the command posted by schemer_co. I will after hearing back from you. (I always figure the fewer commands I make trying to fix a problem the better.)

I do get file not found. But as far as I know, there is no repair feature.

Please let me know where to find a repair option.
