Failed to start cluster activation

I've followed the "getting started" instructions for Aster Express. I'm using 5.0express-r29890.
Successfully added the Worker node but when I click on "Activate Cluster" I always get "Failed to start cluster activation" in the status bar. I saw during start-up of the worker node that the nCluster service failed to start. 
Is it possible to start the service manually on the worker node?
Any other suggestions?
Many thanks in advance!

Good afternoon all,
I have the same Aster configuration as described by Martin above and also the same nCluster fail issues.  The exact error line in whole is "Starting nCluster Services:local.start[3572]: Failed to start Cluster Services Launcher".
Has anyone encountered this before and managed to resolve?

I'm using Aster Express 6.00.01, under VMware player 6.0.3 build-1895310, and have the same problem with starting up the worker node.  The Queen is running, and responds to console requests.  Can anybody help with this?  Here are a few lines from /var/log/clusterservices.log:

I'm having the exact same problem with " Aster Express 6.00.01" on VMWare 6.0.5, did anyone get back to you on this?

When you login to AMC, can you see the Worker node in Prepared state? If so, only then you can activate the cluster.
Otherwise, I would suggest to note donw the IP of worker, remove the worker using AMC console, add it back again. 
Softrestart, and then Activate. Hope this will solve the issue.
