I’ve just completed an upgrade of the following components:
openvas-scanner v5 to v6,
openvas-manager v7 to gvm v8.0
gsad v7 to v8.
I think I’m on top of all the issues now, and I’ve run a couple of test scans without too much trouble. There is one nagging issue I can’t seem to resolve though…
I’ve some custom NASL scripts in plugins/private that worked in the previous versions. Indeed, they seem to still work as far as openvas-scanner is concerned, as I’ve confirmed they are loaded with “log_plugins_name_at_load = yes”, and they pass openvas-nasl-lint test. They are not visible in GSA however.
In previous versions, I created a new scan config and selected the new NVT, but since updating they simply aren’t showing up there. I’m unable to find any errors, or any indication why they may be failing. Is there another step I need to carry out in this version of GSA?
