Summary0008813: Greenbone-Could not connect to Scanner

After installing Greenbone (gvm), the first scan showed the error: Could not connect to scanner
Here's how to solve this problem

1) Go to the /run/ospd/ directory cd /run/ospd

2) Rename the socket file mv ospd.sock ospd-openvas.sock

3) Next, edit the configuration file ospd-openvas.conf. This is necessary because after the first two steps the scanning started, but after receiving the Running status it ended with an error. In the log file gvmd.log I found that the Scanner now wants to connect to a socket named ospd.sock, that is, by the old name. Therefore, open the /etc/gvm/ospd-openvas.conf file with any editor and change the unix_socket line as in the screenshot

4) If gvm was running before, then stop it gvm-stop

5) Be sure to restart the computer in any case, even if gvm was not running

I hope, like me, after the work done, you will get a positive result like here
