I am getting ready to setup HYPER-V for the first time. I have two Domain Controllers, primary and backup both Physical Servers.

I also Have two identical Servers that i want to use as my Hyper V hosts. I have a SAN which i plan on connecting the Host via iSCSI initiators through private network to the SAN Target.

To create a cluster, do I have to install HYPERV on both Hosts and Both Domain Controllers?

What about the cluster role? Where does that go?

All my machines are 2008 Server R2 with SP1.

First, you've never done this before.  DO NOT DO IT ON A PRODUCTION NETWORK AS YOUR FIRST TIME.

Setup a test network and do it there.  Then break it all down and do it again.  Learn it.  THEN do it in production.  

Don't touch the DCs.  They don't need anything.

You install the cluster services on the two other servers that are going to be the Hyper-V Nodes in the cluster.

I strongly recommend you read over MPECS blog on clustering Hyper-V - Philip has some GREAT information on what to do and not to do.
