Delegating Failover Cluster access

Recently I had to delegate Failover Cluster access to a non Domain Admin user. I couldn't find a lot of information on the subject, so after a little trial and error, I found the following works fine:

1) Right Click the cluster in Failover Cluster and select Properties

2) Select Cluster Permissions tab

3) Add the user or group that requires access

4) Select the newly added user/group and check "Read", then click Ok

5) RDP to each of the cluster nodes and grant this user (or group) Local Admin access.

6) Do the happy dance.
