I’m just recently install OpenVAS CE 5.0.10 in Virtual box and trying to scan a Metasploitable machine but the scan is just staying at 1% after 30 minutes. Is there a spot where I can see what the scan is currently doing? Is there a current log file or something?
Please use this category only if you’re using the virtual GCE appliance (virtual machine) provided by Greenbone.
Thats as much logs as the Community Edition offers.
I’d try to find what’s stopping the scan to progress. Maybe start with scanning local host and switch the alive test to “consider alive” with this working configure a single host target, and find an alive test that works. Try using this alive test for a bigger target.
