[Samba] Using Samba 2.2.8a with Microsoft Cluster Services

Hello all-
	First time posting to group in 3.5 years of using Samba ;) 
	I have a particularily odd problem that the folks over at
sql-server-performance.com forums have never seen nor heard of... I am
setting up an W2kAS/SQL2k active/passive cluster using Cluster Services.
The MSCS requires a common domain login for installing and configuring
MSCS which I have setup on my Samba 2.2.8a PDC (domain=cluster,
user=cluster). Both servers joined the domain without a problem and I'm
able to login to both using the domain account.
	The problem occurs during the installation of the MSCS software. I am
able to successfully install the first node using the cluster user
domain account, but when I go to install the second node using the same
account, it gives me the following error: "CLUSTER\cluster does not have
permission to administer the cluster. Please use an account that has
access privileges to the cluster."
	Now, I've gone through all the relevent KB articles and manually added
the CLUSTER/cluster user into the proper local security policies (see KB
#272129 and #269229) on both nodes in the cluster, but the install still
fails out on the second node. 
	I cranked up the logging on my PDC and I've posted the login/auth
failure section of the second node's log at
	My smb.conf file:

$:/var/log/samba# testparm -x -s
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
Processing section "[homes]"
Processing section "[netlogon]"
Loaded services file OK.

Is there any other information that I should be collecting?
