The second QAT device does not start
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG


If HW has multiple QAT devices then only one QAT device will start, because symlinks do not fit for qat_service.

Checking status of all devices.
There is 3 QAT acceleration device(s) in the system:
 qat_dev0 - type: c6xx,  inst_id: 0,  node_id: 1,  bsf: 0000:b1:00.0,  #accel: 5 #engines: 10 state: up
 qat_dev1 - type: c6xx,  inst_id: 1,  node_id: 1,  bsf: 0000:b2:00.0,  #accel: 5 #engines: 10 state: down
 qat_dev2 - type: c6xx,  inst_id: 2,  node_id: 1,  bsf: 0000:b3:00.0,  #accel: 5 #engines: 10 state: down

This issue resolves by deleting symlinks c6xx_dev1.conf and c6xx_dev2.conf, and copying c6xx_dev0.conf file to c6xx_dev1.conf/c6xx_dev2.conf
