Warning 6698 VSS exception code 0x800706be thrown freezing volumes – The remote procedure call failed

When you try to create shadow copies on large volumes that have a small cluster size (less than 4 kilobytes), or if you take snapshots of several very large volumes at the same time, the VSS software provider may use a larger paged pool memory allocation during the shadow copy creation than is required. If there is not sufficient paged pool memory available for the allocation, the shadow copy cannot complete and may cause the loss of all previous shadow copy tasks. Follow this article and apply the fix:
