Event ID 7024 when starting the Routing and Remote Access Service

I was adding the Remote Access/VPN Server Role on a Windows 2003 Server.

The event viewer indicates an event ID 7024 from source Service Control Manager.
The description for this event says:
    The Routing and Remote Access service terminated with service-specific error 711 (0x2C7).

What does that mean?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
