I am currently installing an exchange 2007 CCR.  The client access and hub transport server installed with no problems.  The Server I installed the Active Clustered Mailbox role also installed with no problems, but when installing the Passive Clustered Mailbox role on the passive node I get the following error during the install:
Service 'MSExchangeADTopology' failed to start.  Check the event log for possible reasons for the service start failures.

The event log error;
The Microsoft Exchange Active Directory Topology Service service terminated with specific error 2147943798 (0x80070576)  Event id - 7024

Any ideas why I'm getting this?  Thanks.
