Having an issues setting up a cluster between 2 Domain controllers. I am only using this for a file share cluster as this is where our SAN is connected to both domain controllers. I am unable to run a validate against the other DC from either site.

Any ideas or pointers?

Don't make DCs cluster nodes. It is almost impossible to get working on 2008 (and R2) and officially became unsupported with 2012. Very bad things happen.
