OpenVAS 7 stuck updating NVT cache (Scanner loading nvts)

04 Mar OpenVAS 7 stuck updating NVT cache (Scanner loading nvts)

This one stumped me for a while and I couldn’t find anyone on the Internet who had experienced the same issue….

A working OpenVAS instance suddenly wouldn’t run any new tasks. It was stuck with the message:

Scanner loading nvts (15850/41904)

After trying a lot of things unsuccessfully, I upgraded to the latest version of OpenVAS (installing from source)

Then:

openvasmd –progress –rebuild -v

Looks like I am now back in business.
