The system image restore failed Error details he RPC server is unavailable 0x800706BA RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi all,

    I am trying to do a restore from an external drive and it gets to the very end I get the RPC error.  why would rpc even be involved since this is not a network based backup?  I don't know what to do to recover my system?  I have tried both using the disc to boot and from partially installing and hitting the f8 at boot to restore.  thanks for help with this!

  • Hi,

    What's the operation system version? And what's the option you are taken to do the restore?

    If it is a system status restore please refer to this article:

    Recover the System State


    And if you have a bare metal backup, refer to the article to do a recovery. It's a third party website and the pictures may help on finding exact step:

    In addition, the error code you provided generally occurs when performing a DCPROMO or sync with other DC. Is it a DC which you are trying to restore?
