While my install is not strictly from sources, i am using
ppa:mrazavi/gvm as a base. I have tasks and hosts, scans and nvt updates running very smoothly. Today, i tried to setup a
Host Discovery Task and get a ton of “No redis DB available” in openvas.log. If i run a scan on any other target everything works well, as does
openvas -u, which purports to write updates to redis. My redis server what i know should be the correct items, its only this one task.
Does it use a specific DB #, i need to clear, as i notice multiple indexed databases are used in redis?
I do understand that this may not a a setup you directly support. But since its only impacting a
Host Discovery scan and all other scans work fine. Thought this would be a good place to look for help.
