Reset admin password

How do i reset the admin password for the web interface?
I googled how to reset the admin password and the results showed using this:
openvasmd --user= admin --new- password =new_password.

but the opemvasmd is not found.
this is the gsad version: Greenbone Security Assistant 8.0.0
I think I am using OpenVAS 9

Can you access the GOS Admin Menu via ssh?
You can change the web user passwords via
GOS Admin Menu > Setup > User > Users > Change Password

Nope. This is GVM-10 (old stable, initial release 2019-04-05)

And because you are using GSA 8.0.0 you can’t be on a Greenbone OS based system. Therefore moving to the GSE category. Your packages are outdated.

For GVM 10 and newer the command is

gvmd --user=admin --new-password=new_password
