The Problem

Today I hit the following error after installing SQL Server 2008 R2 and then opening the SQL Server Configuration Manager console.

The remote procedure call failed. [0x800706be]

SQL Server 0x800706be error

The Solution

This issue has been patched in later SQL Server Service Packs. In my case, I installed SQL Server SP2 and viola the problem was solved!
