I have followed the steps using the guide provided but I am having some issues creating a task due to there not being any configs available.
My issue looks very similar to the one found in this post:

However, the defult sock path is where the sock is so it did not resolve my issue unfortunatly.

This is the result when i try and get any configs:

I am not as farmiliar with linux as i would like to be so it may just be something simple which i have missed. Thank you for any help :slight_smile:

Hi @Marcel.o,

Something to try is making sure the Feed Import owner is correctly set, so first rerun this step in the install guide Building GVM 21.04 — Greenbone Documentation documentation

And then try syncing again and let us know what happens. Thanks!

Thank you very much for that.
I have ran the steps again and the configs are not there still.

I have also done these steps which i found from the post which i referred to. I am not sure if this is the problem as there is nothing in the owner column

By any chance is there any other steps which can be suggested to take to try and resolve this?


Hi @Marcel.o,

I’m not sure what’s going on (and you’ve checked the other thread to rule things out).

When I run the exact same query on my reference install I get the same results with an empty owner column (though mine works). Hopefully someone can jump in with additional insight (I’m curious also).

Hi @DeeAnn

I am not sure either.

From the other thread if i could understand correctly they:

  1. set the feed owner again and synced each of the feeds - done

  2. Redis could not find the sock path - I have checked and my sock is at the default location which is /var/run/redis/redis.sock

The only part which I have not done is manually set any permissions, it is currently set to srwxrwxr-x by default.

I also have not rebooted the server as of yet but i would not have thought that it should change anything.

Any other insight would be great, thank you :slight_smile:
