Add CCR to existing single node exchange environment

We originally created our exchange 2007 sp2 (windows 2008 64-bit) environment as a CCR cluster.  The passive node server was having all sorts of hardware errors and we ended up removing that node from the cluster and are just running off the one mailbox server.  The passive node server has since been repaired.  Is it possible to make this a CCR cluster again - without affecting the current mailbox server?

yes, CCR utilizes Windows Failover Clustering so you can add/remove nodes at any time
the current mailbox server will be impacted during the initialization of the database copy onto the passive server, but that should be expected

so basically enable windows failover clustering, create the FSW and install the passive role, then wait for database to copy.  Anything else?
