We have an Exchange 2016 server running on Server 2012. Last night our Exchange server stopped running and we attempted to run a Setup.exe /mode:recoverserver and originally we were receiving a buildtobuildupgrade error that would not allow us to proceed. After removing the BuildtoBuild entries in regedit we are now getting a new error when we try to run the installer. This is the error. I tried to find information on it but no one has seen this error before.

Error:
The following error was generated when "$error.Clear();
      buildToBuildUpgrade-ExsetdataAtom -AtomName MDB -DomainController $RoleDomainController

" was run: "Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Deployment.ExsetdataException: An error occurred with error code '3221685277' and message 'The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.'.
