Summary0006764: gvm does not allow login with given user admin and password printed after gvm-setup finishes

After successfull install of gvm any attempt to login with given user admin and printed password fails. Creating an other admin-user with different name does not helt. Trying to login as this user fails too.

Steps To Reproduce

Install kali, install gvm:

  • apt install gvm
  • gvm-setup
  • gvm-start

Browser opens. Then try to login with given username/password.
Reaction: Login Failed. Invalid password or username.

adding an other user with "gvmd --create-user=user --password=password" then try to login with these gives the very same result.

I did a work around the problem and it fixed it:

The problem is that Postgresql 12 is down when you have a new Kali installation, run the following commands to put it to work, then you need to perform a Postgresql upgrade from 12 to 13

msfdb init # this will initiate the database with some metasploit data.

Install updates and upgrade

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade # in this step say yes to all
sudo reboot

Install Postgresql 13

sudo apt-get install postgresql-13 postgresql-client-13

Stop Postgres Cluster 13

sudo pg_dropcluster --stop 13 main

Upgrade old cluster
sudo pg_upgradecluster 12 main

Check for cluster 13 running:

pg_lsclusters # check that running port is 5432

Proceed with the installation :

sudo apt-get install gvm
sudo gvm-setup
