Subject: [Openvas-discuss] Openvas-Scanner Error:
Connection reset by peer


I am having an issue with my Openvas installation. Any tasks that I launch from Greenbone Security's GUI will change to the state "Requested", then timeout and change to 'Completed' without ever starting. I'm at my wit's end and am not sure what to try next. I'm going to provide as much detail as I can and beg/plead for some guidance on how to proceed :D
-I have OpenVAS running on a Centos 7 VM
-Here is an example of the error message in the log:
md   main:WARNING:2017-07-26 16h36.51 EDT:2423: openvas_scanner_read: Failed to read from scanner: Connection reset by peer

-I'm running these versions:Manager:OpenVAS Manager 7.0.1Manager DB revision 184
GSAD:Greenbone Security Assistant 7.0.2

Scanner:OpenVAS Scanner 5.1.1Most new code since 2005: (C) 2016 Greenbone Networks GmbH

-Openvas-check-setup returns "It seems like your OpenVAS-9 installation is OK"
-Redis is active and ready to receive connections at /tmp/redis.sock

-SELinux is disabled, and iptables isn't blocking loopback (locally)

-Checking to see if the processes exist and are running (I'm not sure why there are two instances of gsad)

If there is any additional information that I should provide, please let me know. Like I said before, I'm at the end of my rope as far as ideas/fixes go, and would greatly appreciate some insight.

FWIW: It was working previously, and only recently (~1 month ago) noticed the scans were no longer functioning
