GVM only showing logs not vulnerabilities of Metasploitable

GVM versions

gsad: 21.04.0
gvmd: Greenbone Vulnerability Manager 21.4.0 Manager DB revision 242
openvas-scanner: OpenVAS 21.4.0
gvm-libs: 21.4.0


Operating system: Kali Linux
Kernel: Linux kali 5.10.0-kali7-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.28-1kali1 (2021-04-12) x86_64 GNU/Linux
Installation method / source: Terminal

When I scan with GVM with the target being a Metasploitable system (which has vulnerabilites) none show up on the GVM reports page aside from 6 logs. What could be the reason for this. Thank you

Made an account just to say that I’m having the same issue and I’m looking for a solution too.

GSAD v21.4.1
GVMD v21.4.2
Kali Linux Kernel version 5.10.0 kali9 amd64

I was suspicious that my scans for other hosts were not actually running, that was a mix of there being no network activity and the scans taking less than 1 minute so I decided to scan metasploitable and got the same results (minus 1 log).

Checking the gsad, gvm and openvas logs I find nothing but scans being started, run and then completed with no errors.

If I figure anything out, I will definitely post another reply.

Did you checked it against a GVM Trial? Just to be sure that your scan-engine/feed is working ?

Had this issue, needed to spin up coulpe of kali laptops. Look at this issue https://github.com/yu210148/gvm_install/issues/26. This helped me.


The following might apply here as well:

Thank you so much, this solution worked for me!
