    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: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/wiki/index.php/OpenVas

    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?

    Thoughts?

    Thanks in advance,
    bc

    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
