Exchange 2007 - Clustered Mailbox Server not in a started (online) state (Failed)

Decided to stop the Clustered Resource and restart both the Active and Passive nodes.  The Storage Group/databases themselves are in a Clean Shutdown state but when I try to start the Clustered Mailbox back up I get an error.  See image.   Help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your response...I finally figured it out. The event viewer only provided generic info thus not a lot to go on there. The issue was due do the number of log files for each mailbox.  For some reason the backup utility failed to remove them the last two weeks and thus the cluster would not come online.

The databases were in a clean state thus all of logs were committed.  I cleared them out to a new location on both the active and passive nodes, Ran a Restore Storage Group Copy, mounted the databases successfully and replication soon began.
