http://blogs.msdn.com/b/clustering/archive/2010/11/23/10095621.aspx  - would be helpful.

Also can you check whether you are using two seperate Networks for Prodn and Heartbeat, if yes then are both the NIC's registering their IP's on DNS ?

If you receive the error "RPC Server is unavailable," make sure the server is operational and that both the Cluster service and the RPC services are running. Also, check the name resolution of the cluster; it is possible that you are using the wrong name or that the name is not being properly resolved by WINS or DNS.

did you double check that the services are running on both servers? Have you done reboots of both servers after you installed the cluster services?

Yes I did it ...After installing cluster role I restarted the servers.All ports are open to clister nodes and domain controllers.

I am able to validate 100%..
After giving the clister virtual IP and name it went to creating cluster group creation...after that it failing to complete giving an error.

What i would try is to stage the name of the cluster in A.D. and give both servers full permissions to that name.
