Thanks for posting these instructions. There are several issues I've encountered on Centos 7 (CentOS Linux release 7.3.1611 (Core)), including the following:
1. "openvas-check-setup" still defaults to version 8, and will complain that openvassd is too old or too new. "openvas-check-setup --v9" works properly.
2. redis is configured to create its redis.sock file to /tmp; however, it does not have sufficient privileges to do so. Either grant appropriate rights, or choose another location, such as /run/redis/redis.sock. In choosing the latter, the redis.conf file must be updated to reflect that change, as must the openvassd.conf file (by adding an entry "kb_location = /run/redis/redis.sock". In any case, the installation routine adds two unnecessary lines to the end of the redis.conf file, which ought to be commented out / removed altogether.
NOTE: Thanks to Michael Hampton for his post at https://serverfault.com/questions/82192 ... wont-start
for the redis information.
3. finally, OpenVAS v9 has changed its SQLite syntax, according to this post at https://lists.wald.intevation.org/piper ... 03839.html
, requiring a minimum of v3.8.3; however, v3.7.17 appears to be the highest available version for Centos 7, according to this article http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/searc ... ntos&arch=
