greetings Michael,

i created a "second" user with the help of the openvas-adduser script,  
to communicate with the manager. i used this account for testing the  
communication with the manager over the omp command line tool.

whether i start the manager daemon over the start script  
/etc/init.d/openvas-manager or i start the openvasmd with parameter,  
it logs the failure:
Authentication configuration could not be loaded
