I have a two node Windows 2003 cluster running SQL 2005 in a clustered instance.  Both cluster nodes are domain controllers. I want to upgrade them to Windows 2008 folowing this process:

However, after evicting a node successfully  the Windows 2008 installer will not proceed on it complaining that the computer is still a member of a cluster and cannot therefore be upgraded.
I have tried using the cluster command line to force cleanup and simply get an error. Has anyone been here before and know what to do?

Note,  I have preped AD to accept a Windows 2008 DC.

Any help is appreciated.
