Scheduled Scans


This is most likely in the wrong category but I couldn’t see one for GSA. please move this post or explain where I should post thank you. First time poster FYI.

I have Greenbone Security Assistant Version 7.0.3. and I have everything working how I want. I have set up monthly scheduled tasks which work great, but I would like to set the scan to run on monady to friday or just not run on weekends.

Is this possible inside Openvas or with an add on or even from linux?

Im running Kali Linux.

With GVM 10 (contains GSA 8.0) it is possible to specify more flexible schedules. See

Thank you for your reply, I’m still pretty new to all this as I’m sure you can tell.

I can’t seem to find a definitive release date for GVM 10, do you know when this will be roughly?

GVM-10 was released two months ago:

A post was split to a new topic: How to update from GVM-9 to GVM-10?
