Expand_vhosts and virtual hosts

GVM versions

gsad: 20.08
gvmd: 20.08
openvas-scanner: 20.08
gvm-libs: 21.1.1

Hello guys,
I turned off expand_vhosts and I still get the virtual hosts results. I checked with openvas -s and it shows that the expand_vhosts is turned off (value is “no”). What can I further do to disable the virtual hosts? Or what am I doing wrong?


Hi @robert,
what you set in the openvas.conf file are default preferences. This default preferences will be overwritten with the preferences set in the scan config. A default scan config (e.g. Full&Fast) can not be edited, you have to clone it first.
