Summary0005606: Metasploit Database Setup in Kali Docker Container
DescriptionHello,

This issue is happening with the official docker image at the official docker repository
https://hub.docker.com/r/kalilinux/kali-linux-docker

When I try to start the msf database I get the following error:

```
root@kali:/# service postgresql start
[ ok ] Starting PostgreSQL 11 database server: main.
root@kali:/# msfdb init
System has not been booted with systemd as init system (PID 1). Can't operate.
Failed to connect to bus: Host is down
[+] Starting database
System has not been booted with systemd as init system (PID 1). Can't operate.
Failed to connect to bus: Host is down
[i] The database appears to be already configured, skipping initialization
root@kali:/#
```

I would like to know how to go around or fix this error.
Thanks.
Steps To ReproduceUse `msfdb init` on the docker image.

Hi!
I made some tests here, you can ignore this error.
As far as I have tested, everything is working fine.

To double-check it, you can connect in the database and verify the existence of the following databases:
msf
msf_test

Those errors are only a sign that systemd is not running in the container. They might be harmless, I haven't checked. We could improve the script to detect the lack of systemd and switch to manual startup of services but that script is likely to replaced by the upstream version (cf 0005262) so I don't think we should care about this at this point.
