In the manual page for greenbone-nvt-sync (man greenbone-nvt-sync) there is this sentence: “If your installation does not allow automatic restart, you need to restart the scanner manually.”.
I have been playing around with how best to update my scanner, e.g. by running
in crontab daily. Now, it also says in man greenbone-nvt-sync that it will send a signal to openvassd and openvasmd to restart/reload/update?
My question is: Is there any special configuration I need to put in place to allow openvassd and openvasmd to restart/reload/update on signal from greenbone-nvt-sync.
There is no mention of this in “man openvassd” or “openvassd --help”
Currently I’m running openvassd and openvasmd on unix-sockets.
