WMI error 800706BE: The remote procedure call failed



Your Vote:



Hello, I'm trying to use PRTG Network Monitor on a Azure VPSs System (some VPS linked through Logmein Hamachi VPN)

I installed the PRTG on one VPS and I want to test performance from another VPS.

I could do it, I could get information from the server through WMI sensor from only one day, but suddenly stop working getting the error 800706BE: The remote procedure call failed.

I download the WMI Tester app and on my laptop and I can get access from the server to test using the same Hamachi VPN but if I run the same test from the server where is PRTG NetMon is installed I got the error.

The troubleshooting guide speaks how to configure the server, but seems to be a problem on the client, could be?
