I had invoked a feed update multiple times and waited for the process to finish. The feed status page in the web console also continually toggled from current to update in progress. When I started up the VM today, all the NVT’s and such showed populated, which they did not the previous day. Once an update started, all those NVT’s disappeared and the system continually crashed.
In an attempt at a clean slate, I tried to just start over and re-install and I remember having issues the first time around on installing but this time…something in this process is very unstable.
The setup got stuck in a loop of switching from Installation in progress to dumping some sort of stack trace that looks like a crash report.
I attempted another install and this time it didn’t get stuck in a loop but did dump the stack once and then finished but then after it finished and you select reboot, it dumped to the console and never actually rebooted. I killed the VM and restarted which seemed to move along but after going through all the basic setup again I can’t reach the web interface so it likely failed to install properly.
Same as attempt 2 with the single crash dump but then proceeded without issue through the install, got to the reboot option, rebooted and then failed to initialize something during this process and so never completed the second restart.
I then logged in and went to the reboot option and then this process finished successfully and rebooted again.
Went through the setup and waited for the feed process to finish. I can see the NVT’s, SCAP’s etc. Checked the feed status in the web and waited for Update in progress to complete but it still shows the missing database. It seems to be stuck in another loop where as soon as it finishes the update it immediately tries to update again.
So after new install, the feed updates as far as I can tell from the terminal interface, the web UI toggles between current and updating but still no configs. The VM has been running for probably an hour at this point so not sure how long this is supposed to take but that seems like more than enough time. The scan configs just show one entry on the web ui, empty. Where do I go from here?
