This should work fine,  I run 4 workers on one machine without any

It sounds like maybe you have some filesystem issues preventing bro from

What do you have in /usr/local/bro/spool/ for each of the failing nodes?
Is there anything in the stdout or stderr logs?

/usr/local/bro/spool/debug.log may also have useful info

I would focus on the machine that it starts partially on.
