    Default Openvas consistantly hangs VM

    BackTrack Version: BT5R1-GNOME-VM-32
    System Info: AMD Phenom II Dual-Core, 64-bit, 8 Gb RAM
    OS/Software Info: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, VM Workstation 8.0.0 build-471780

    I walked through this post to make sure Openvas was installed correctly:

    Using either the web/http interface, or the Greenbone Desktop interface I am able to add targets and create tasks. However, as soon as I kick off a scan (start a task); the complete VM hangs; host CPU spikes repeatedly, the vmware-vmx.exe is top process.

    I've rebuilt the VM and reinstalled Openvas several times, behaviour is consistent.

    I presume it's trying to conduct the scan, but is this normal behavior? Can the scan be throttled to not consume all of the VMs resources?


    Thanks in advance,

    Default Riferimento: Openvas consistantly hangs VM

    Did you upgraded VM's version without upgrading vmware-tools?
    For now, I preferred to keep the VM at his original version and its original vmware-tools, I have no issues
