ClusteredMailboxServer is partially configured message with running EXBPA tool

I get this message with running the Best Practices Analyzer Tool in Exchange 2007 SP1 - Rollup 6

ClusteredMailboxServer' is partially configured on server apbrex2.apsu.edu. Either setup is configuring it right now or setup failed while configuring it. Please rerun setup if it isn't currently running.  The cluster seems fine, and the get-clusteredmailboxserver command says it is online and lists the correct nodes.
 I see a similar question in the past, but I don't have the registry key mentioned in the solution.  Does anyone know how to check if there is any 'real' problem, and/or make the error go away in the tool?

Thanks

Ok so just to reconfirm browse to the folowing entry in the registry
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Exchange\v8.0\ClusteredMailboxServer
Do you see the "Watermark" or the "Action" key ?
If Yes then delete both the keys Watermark and Action
If No then the only solution would be to rerun the following command
Setup.com /newcms /cmsname:<NameofClusteredMailboxServer>
/cmsipaddress:<IPAddressofClusteredMailboxServer>
Just specify your existing cms name and ipaddress and check what happens

I don't even see ClusteredMailboxServer? I see AdminTools,ClientAccessRole,HubTransportRole,Hygiene, and Setup.I can retest the failover during evening hours to insure it really stills works okay. What are risks of above commands, generally speaking.  Dell did our install - so my knowledge of the install process isn't thorough.
Thanks

Perhaps I looked at the wrong server befre.  I tested the cluster this evening which worked -- and checked the registry keys again.  The Watermark and Action keys were present, and I deleted them.  Thanks
