Hi, Who ever is facing the problem mentioned above, in multi tenancy
environment, can try to add the delay between when starting / stoping each
chilli daemon. For the reference, you can search archives. i have single
script there that start & stop multiple chilli daemons successfully (Tested
with 5 daemons) and add delays between each daemon when starting and

Coova-Chilli_1.3.0/UB_12.4LTS x64 Server

I Love Covva-Chiili - Thanks David B.
