Cluster Computer account does not showup in active directory

Recently we noticed that some of the cluster names (virtual computer account for the cluster) are not showing in our active directory while others do. This happens for windows 2003 clusters and windows 2008 R2.

Has anyone seen something like that before?

The 2008's should have a VCO created either automatically or manually.
See the following MS article:

The 2003 clusters one would have to create the virtual cluster name especially for Kerberos.

I would suspect that the installer of the cluster has added more than 10 machines.
So may have to be done manually.
See "To prestage a cluster name account" in document linked:
