Cannot install SP2, upgrade fails

After installing SQL Server 2005 Enterprise x64 on a Cluster, I find I'm unable to patch to SP2. Some services patch, but Database Services and Integration Services always fail.

The curious thing is, when I select @@version from within SSMS, it reports the version as SP2:

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 - 9.00.3042.00 (X64)   Feb 10 2007 00:59:02   Copyright (c) 1988-2005 Microsoft Corporation  Enterprise Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 5.2 (Build 3790: Service Pack 2)

I'm hesitant to proceed knowing there was a failure on install. Can anyone advise? I've attached the contents of the SQL9_Hotfix_KB921896_sqlrun_sql.msp.log and DTS9_Hotfix_KB921896_sqlrun_dts.msp.log files for reference.

Apologies, I've edited the question to remove the staggeringly long code snippet and have attached the relevant log files individually.

Check your DCOM -- Go into DCOMCnfg --> Component Services --> Computers --> My Computer --> Right click Properties --> Default Properties tab.

The Default Authentication Level should be Connect and the Impersonation Level be Identify.

Turns out the issue involved the service account not having appropriate domain permissions. Looks like it has to have some minimum domain permissions to successfully add accounts to groups.
