Socket Error: Socket /var/run/gvmd.sock does not exist

I have downloaded gvm-tools using pip command yesterday and /var/run/gvmd.sock file was present. But today when I try to run the gvm socket command it is giving an error “Socket /var/run/gvmd.sock does not exist” . Can you please help me solving this error because the file gvmd.sock was automatically removed.

The gvmd.sock socket is provided by the manager daemon (gvmd). If the socket doesn’t exist after an restart of your system then:

  1. your startup script to start the gvmd doesn’t work correctly
  2. you don’t have startup scripts at all
  3. there are some other problems in your setup which are causing a failure while starting gvmd

Make sure that gvmd is started after your system was restarted via e.g. systemd startup scripts.


Thanks for your reply, I have also posted another gvm error related to gvm-script not found , I would be very gratefull if I can get solution for solving that error
