I have openvas4 installed on a Debian 6 server, i'm using the OBS packages.
I have noticed recently that when I go to login to the GSA web gui (i.e
https://ip:9392) it completely freezes - i.e after putting the login it
*never* logs in (I have left it over 10 mins,,,)
I try to restart the server using:-
/etc/init.d/greenbone-security-assistant restart shows
ERROR. (it normally does though)
I try to restart all the services
And still it doesn't work until I reboot - then I can login.
The only logs files in :-
openvasad.log openvasad.log.3.gz openvasad.log.6.gz
openvasmd.log.7.gz openvassd.messages.1.gz openvassd.messages.4.gz
openvasad.log.1.gz openvasad.log.4.gz openvasad.log.7.gz
openvasmd.log.2.gz openvasmd.log.5.gz openvassd.dump openvassd.messages.2.gz
openvasad.log.2.gz openvasad.log.5.gz openvasmd.log
openvassd.messages openvassd.messages.3.gz openvassd.messages.6.gz
Doesn't show anything (am I missing any logs)
This 'may' be connected with a cronjob I have - I have made a script to
update the - openvas-nvt-sync
My script is
/usr/bin/killall -9 openvassd
and my cronjob
34 11 * * * /usr/local/bin/openvas-sync2.sh
- Is there a better way of automating the nvt sync ?
As mentioned as soon as I reboot it is fine.
Can anyone help diagnose this?
