All Scans Interrupted 0%

I have install Kali Linux on a KVM Virtual machine. Kali works fine and gvm loads with no problems. However, all scans fail interrupted at 0%. I disabled IPV6 as mentioned in post but that does not fix the issue. Is there any known fixes for this issue?


to debug a scan issue it is always required to take a look at the logs and the errors tab at the scan report details page.

In some older posts it is actually mentioned that IPv6 needs to be enabled:

I’m sure it’s a configuration with your targets. Turn on “Consider Alive” whats happening is before scanning is started openvas will is pinging the systems but if your systems are blocking ICPM packets the ping is not getting a response and is considering the system to be scanned as currently off so it doesn’t start the actual scanning.
