Openvas setup fails

If I wasn’t clear in my previous post, you have to run “openvas-setup” as the first big step to installing openvas which includes installing the openvas-management. Then, you should repeatedly run the script “” until every issue is identified and resolved.

If you’re asking about the Adminstrator User Account, create the User as I described, whether you specify the Administrator role or not, it will be given Adminstrator privileges.


Well, authoritative is of course the man page. But man pages are not always easy to understand and it is nice you found a tutorial that helps you.
