Openvas-scanner.service fails due to time out.
Okay so a little back ground on my issue. We are running OpenVAS 9 on Ubuntu 16.04 (Bionic Beaver) and we had an issue where our system froze during a scan and we had to do a hard reset on the system. Well this caused the scanning service to lock up and failed to start any new scans or even resume the scan we were running when we had to hard reset. I ended up uninstalling OpenVAS and tried to reinstall it but it again failed because of the openvas-scanner.service failing to start. It got to the Rebuilding NVT cache and stopped completely. I have tried deleting the dump.rdb but that file doesn’t exist on our system. I can’t access the redis.conf file to comment out or delete info from it. I flushed the redis.sock file and restarted the redis-server. Any other thoughts on what I have to do beside reimage the system?
