[Openvas-discuss] Can't use SMB credentials

Oops, I meant omp as in openvas-cli, sorry about that, I did use the right

As for the exact OMP commands I use, I start the scanner and the manager as
usual and then :
(note : I do a | sed to get the ids generated by each command)

omp -p 9391 -X "<create_target><name>my target</name><hosts>[my targets

omp -p 9391 -X "<create_config><name>[my config
name]</name><get_configs_response status=\"200\" status_text=\"OK\">
<config id=\"baba56c8-73ec-11df-a475-002264764cea\"><name>[my config
oid=""><name/></nvt><name>port_range</name><type/><value>[my ports
<preference><nvt oid=""><name>SMB
Authorization</name></nvt><name>SMB domain
(optional):</name><type>entry</type><value>[my domain
<preference><nvt oid=""><name>SMB
login:</name><type>entry</type><value>[my login here]<value/></preference>
<preference><nvt oid=""><name>SMB
password:</name><type>entry</type><value>[my password
<preference><nvt oid=""><name>SSH
Authorization</name></nvt><name>SSH login
name:</name><type>entry</type><value>[my login here]</value></preference>
<preference><nvt oid=""><name>SSH
Authorization</name></nvt><name>SSH password
(unsafe!):</name><type>password</type><value>[my password

The [...] parts are identical to the "Full and fast" default config. The [my
X here] are all filled in clear text. Then I simply do :

omp -p 9391 -X "<create_task><name>my task</name><config id="[the config id
here]"></config><target id="[the target id here]"></target></create_task>"

omp -p 9391 -X "<start_task task_id="[the task id here]"/>"

omp -p 9391 -X "<get_reports report_id="[the report id here]" format="xml"
levels="hmlgdf"/>" --pretty-print > my_report.xml

Everything works just fine, except the SMB authentication. As I said
earlier, the same thing happens when I use <create_lsc_credential>, SSH
works and SMB fails. And the same operations carried out with GSA all work
(SMB included).
