    some issues and solutions for gvm 11.0.2+kali4


    As OpenVAS has moved to GVM and and I wanted to avoid migration issues I installed the latest package of gvm (11.0.2+kali4) from the scratch and gvmd-check-setup says that my installation is OK but still I see two issues:

    First is that changing the admin pasword just doesn't work.
    "gvmd --user=admin --new-password=new_password" doesn't give any errors but just has no effect.
    After a couple of tries I figured out that you need to run the command as user _gvm:
    "sudo runuser -u _gvm -- gvmd --user=admin --new-password=new_password"
    Maybe you could give a hint if it's run as different user/root?

    Second is that for the NVT plugins to be recognized correctly I had to symlink the plugin directory:
    "sudo runuser -u _gvm -- ln -s /var/lib/openvas/plugins /var/lib/gvm/plugins"

    it seems that the sync script still put the NVTs in the old directory...

    Could you have a look into these issues, please.

    Thank you for your help

    Seems gvm/openvas is not functional in Kali now.
    I made fresh install and updated Kali up to 2020.4 before installing gvm.
    Looks like the problem is related to communication between gvmd and postgresql 13.

    Here the logs:

    I have exactly the same problems. OpenVAS or GVM, whatever it's called today is working fine but it is impossible to login. Everything that Greenbone does is pointing at Kali. I refuse to understand why it is necessary to demolish working software time and time again... What was wrong with OpenVAS the way is was?
