I’ve compiled and installed OpenVAs 21.4.2, then started ospd-openvas, gvmd, and gsad daemons with success. I can access the web portal and log in, then create my first target (192.168.2.0/24), then a scan task to test. Unfortunately, the scan complete without nothing detected. I can ping the subnet IP and nmap also work on the subnet IP. Port List data exist as well as Scan configs data and Scanners (CVE, OpenVAS Default). Therefore I’m a little bit lost now and need help to found out where the problem is, thanks.
you can increase the logging level /etc/gvm for gsad_log.conf gvmd_log.conf where “level=128” means DEBUG.
and inspect future logs from targets. I using the “htop” too, during the scan - for some additional pieces of information.
Thanks for you help. It seems that the problem is related to the “Alive Test” option. If I put the “Consider Alive” parameter to avoid ping, then it works and I can scan my subnet. So the question here is why the ping is not working?
