Server 2008 Cluster File Share Issue

I have a two node cluster.  I have it configured as a file server.  I created a shared folder through the cluster manager with appropriate share permissions.  However, when I restart the nodes, the shared folder does not come back online with the permissions I set.  It comes up with default everyone, ready only.

warning message:
Cluster file share 'Share' cannot be brought online.  Creation of the file share 'Share' (scoped to network name ALIAS) failed due to error '2118'.  This operation automatically retired.

Is there a duplicate share name on the network?

I have a DFS Namespace that is the same name as the share.

Cluser Share:
\\ClusterAliasName\Share

DFS Standalone Namespace:
\\ClusterAliasName\Share

The fileshare was setup first, then DFS was added.  I have this working on another cluster with the same share name, but am not seeing the difference.
