[Openvas-discuss] Scheduled Task won't start

Nobody here who can help or give at least a hint?

I have at least been able to move "tasks.db" from OpenVAS-9 on Debian 9 to 
OpenVAS-9 on Debian 8 and run scheduled tasks on the target system with no 

Is there any recommendation in regards to the OS and version for running 
OpenVAS-9 from sources?
Should I stick with version 8 in case of Debian as the OS for OpenVAS-9?

Thanks, Helmut
