I am trying out the GCE appliance.
Things are going smooth except that the openvas-scanner service is not started till I delete the /etc/openvas/openvassd.conf file.
I figured out the above mentioned work around after running the script openvas-check-setup which threw error :
ERROR: Your OpenVAS Scanner configuration seems to be from a pre-OpenVAS-4 installation and contains non-FHS compliant paths.
** FIX: Delete your OpenVAS Scanner Configuration file /etc/openvas/openvassd.conf).**
After I deleted the openvassd.conf file, the scanner service started automatically in few seconds.
What could be the permanent solution please?
