Boreas could not initialise alive detection

When I try to do a scan, it errors out with 0% Interrupted. When I look at the OpenVAS.log I see the error that the Boreas is not connecting. Any help would be appreciated.

This could be a duplicate of the following existing topic:

Edit: Two additional ones added

It just might be but I do not have a solution nor have I been able to find one. Can someone please help with where to look to resolve this issue.

Unfortunately there is no general / generic solution known / available.

The reasons for this are even unknown (e.g. is this an environmental issue, some hardening on the system, …, ?) and you would need to check the available resources (i have linked two additional existing topics) to see if anything what is known yet could solve your problem.

Hi @RichieRich,
I would check the process owner with ps -aux |grep openvas . Please check if openvas is running as root user process. Otherwise, check the sudoers file and set the right permission there.

it is running as root user. THis is really nuts!! I have a new install of Ubuntu 22.04 and have loaded greenbone.

This is such a pain in the butt.

Learned that there is something in Ubuntu that is stopping it from running. AppArmor. My solution was to start over and I have loaded Debian and this issue was resolved.

Thank you all for your guidance.
