I keep receiving the following error when trying to run openvassd via /usr/sbin.
“Error while loading shared libraries: libopenvas_nasl.so.9: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory”
I am a complete rookie when it comes to OpenVas and I was given the task to update our instance to the latest version. We were on 7.0.2, and i believe its the GCE edition, not entirely sure honestly.
I found an article stating to the following via cli:
- /usr/sbin/openvasmd –update –verbose –progress
- /etc/init.d/openvas-manager restart
- /etc/init.d/openvas-scanner restart
Once I did the -update -verbose part, after completion there was no openvas-manager in /etc/init.d/. I checked the version and it was still 7.02. Then i tried the following command yum install open vas. Which didnt seem to work and only make things worse. It said openvas packages were available but none actually installed so i force installed libraries (openvas-libraries-9.0.1). I’m basically stuck as i have come across no solution to manually installing the missing shared library the error is displaying.
On top of this i made the mistake of not making a backup of our working instance, so as of right now we dont have an openvas instance working.
Any help is very much appreciated. Thank you!
