I followed the guide to install from Source on a Ubuntu Server 20.04 but I can’t start any services (
Greenbone Vulnerability Manager | Libellux)
Gsad log show :
gsad main:MESSAGE:2022-03-11 09h45.11 utc:32610: Starting GSAD version 21.4.3
gsad main:CRITICAL:2022-03-11 09h45.11 utc:32625: main: Could not write PID file.
journalctl -xe shows :
mars 11 09:47:42 bone systemd: gsad.service: Can’t open PID file /run/gvm/gsad.pid (yet?) after start: Operation not permitted
mars 11 09:47:42 bone systemd: gvmd.service: Scheduled restart job, restart counter is at 415.
I guess I have to give permission but, if I’m not wrong, /run/gvm is created automatically by systemd.
Can anynone help please ?

Hi Have you figured this out yet. I’m experiencing the same issue
Make sure you’ve provided the permission to the gvm user:
sudo chown -R gvm:gvm /run/gsad
Once you’ve done that stop the service and restart it. If the PID is still busy kill it.

no change after running the suggested command. There is no gsad under /run/.
I’m having the same issue on Ubuntu 20.04. trying to update to 21.4.4 using the official source install instructions.

@dsekely_brs could you please paste your exact error? If you followed our docs you must get a different error.

Looks like the issue was fixed for me after removing the /etc/systemd/system/gsad.service then uninstalling and reinstalling gsad.
The new service location is /usr/lib/systemd/system/gsad.service
I went back through the install again and was able to get it going this time.
