View Full Version : Openvas issue: login failed. omp service is down

2014-10-05, 15:54

I installed openvas but I got failure when try to logon on the web console "login failed. omp service is down". I'm not sure whether installation was completed correctly because in the end of the process when it starts update annual CVE issues terminal windows closed unexpectedly without any messages.
I tried to run openvasmd --rebuild but it does not bring any output. Openvas-nvt-sync says "Feed is already current".

I tried to installed openvas manually and it failed:

I appreciate your ideas how to fix the issue or a way of full openvas re-installation.

After system files review solution was found as run openvas-setup again and repeat installation process. Later I added yet another user using openvasmd and successfully logon to the console.

This was updated in the new kalimenu. These were the steps it took to get it running for me:

openvasmd --create-user=admin --role=Admin
openvasmd --user=admin --new-password=NEWPASSWORD
