I have recently migrated my previous Openvas-8 to Openvas-9 and I have some issues with the vulnerability results of existing tasks. Openvas-9 is running on linux mint 19 64bits.
With openvas-8; vulnerabilities found appears with their friendly name, as expected, both on the GSA console and in the csv reports.
With openvas-9; many vulnerabilities (but not all) appears with their NVT references (eg; [22.214.171.124.4.1.256126.96.36.1994485]), both on GSA and in the csv reports.
The tasks have been previously ran under openvas-8 environment; then the database was migrated to openvas-9 where the problem is. The tasks were not restarted on the new environment as I’m currently in testing mode.
I have flushed my plugins/scap-data/cert-data directories and refreshed all the feeds but same results. Any idea where this issue comes from ?
Thanks for moving my post to the correct list. I have just tested to perform a new scan on my local network with openvas-9, and surprisingly there is 0 results. The scan seems to perform OK, but I find very very suspicious that nothing at all is reported, as if all hosts were dead. There should be a problem in my installation with my feeds.
I’ve launched the openvas setup script with --v9 but there is no error. Where else should I check ?
I’ve checked all of this and that’s not my case. I have many hosts responding to ping on my LAN, so even that simple test doesn’t work. I have nmap installed in the system path. And if I link this issue to the fact that old scan results shows NVT instead of vulnerability names, then I really believe it is linked with my feeds.
I actually found out the root cause of this issue. Going into Configuration > Scan Configs shows all scan configs with 0 NVT. Isn’t this supposed to be configured by default ? Is it overwritten when importing a tasks.db file from a previous installation ?
where/how did you run that command? I;ve tried going to maintenance, opening the shell and typing in that command but it says “command not found”. I am running Greenbone OS 4.2.24 on vwmare in a linux 4.x 64bit host
Please note that running suggestions / command line calls given in the Source Edition (GSE) category within a Community Edition (GCE) installation is strongly discouraged in most cases as both environments are quite different.
As you have created No Scan Results - NVT 0/0 in the correct category i would suggest to use that thread for further questions on this topic.
