Hi, after upgrade to 21.4.3 under Kali, this greenbone-security-assistant.service has gone…thus I cannot access GVM from anywhere. How to setup access GVM from anywhere?
Hi @pierrestone and welcome to the forum
I’ve moved your post to a new topic and it looks like it’s similar to this report Failed to start greenbone-security-assistant.service: Unit greenbone-security-assistant.service not found. · Issue #3368 · greenbone/gsa · GitHub
which appears to be a packaging issue in Kali. The Kali bug reporting system is here at My View - Kali Linux Bug Tracker
Have you found a solution for this just yet by chance?
That is our of the control of this forum, please contact the Kali Maintainer.
Thanks @Lukas and I totally understand. I know a few others are going to land on this thread, however, as it’s pretty much the first thing that comes up in Google from recent mentions of this.
For me, I was able to get it fixed by re-creating the service file which is missing in the latest Kali. You can add the following contents in the
[Unit] Description=Greenbone Security Assistant (gsad) Documentation=man:gsad(8) https://www.greenbone.net After=network.target gvmd.service Wants=gvmd.service [Service] Type=forking User=_gvm Group=_gvm ExecStart=/usr/sbin/gsad --listen=127.0.0.1 --port=9392 Restart=always TimeoutStopSec=10 [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target Alias=gsad.service
Hope this helps others who will run into these same issue.
Thank you for that investigation. I will close the topic here.
