Summary0001953: OpenVAS not working

Hi Guys,

I need you advice - I use latest Kali Linux with all updates, OpenVAS check install scrpit shows, that all configured correctly:

It seems like your OpenVAS-7 installation is OK.
But, I completely can't work with OpenVAS, because I login to web interface, start scan, click on any menu button (in web interface and always get error:

Internal error: get_many:1205 (GSA 5.0.1)

An internal error occurred while getting resources list. The current list of resources is not available. Diagnostics: Failure to receive response from manager daemon.

Seems, that OpenVAS completely broken in Kali.

Additional Information

I will provide all needed info just to help solve this problem.

Here, what I found in logs:

md main:WARNING:2014-12-13 22h48.21 UTC:8469: read_from_server: failed to read from server: A TLS packet with unexpected length was received.
md main:WARNING:2014-12-13 22h48.29 UTC:8490: read_from_server: failed to read from server: A TLS packet with unexpected length was received.

lib serv:WARNING:2014-12-13 22h54.18 utc:9612: openvas_server_connect: failed to connect to server (interrupted): Connection refused

This log was reflecting error, when I wasn't able login to OpenVAS web interface with error 'OMP is down'

Seems problem was in expired certificate.

Next command solve this problem:

openvas-mkcert-client -n om -i

I wonder, how this could be in clean Kali setup..

Are you booting in the live image or are you using Kali installed on harddisk ?

If the former, what ISO are you using ?

If the latter, what when did you do the installation and what ISO did you use to do your installation ?

We didn't reproduce the error. But as it seems to be caused by expired certificate, we add certificates checks in the openvas-check-setup and openvas-setup.
The fixed version is 1.7.2. I just pushed it in kali-proposed-updates.
Please try to run openvas-check-setup.

openvas 1.7.2 is now in Kali itself.
