Summary:
meaningless error message: "failed to set credentials key file"

Detailed description
When starting gsad, I get this error messages:



lib serv:WARNING:openvas_server_new: failed to set credentials key file

lib serv:WARNING:openvas_server_new: cert file: /opt/openvas/var/lib/openvas/CA/clientcert.pem

lib serv:WARNING:openvas_server_new: key file : /opt/openvas/var/lib/openvas/private/CA/clientkey.pem



I can not understand this error message. What does it mean? Please change to something meaningful which helps solving the problem.



In addition this is marked as "Warning", but openvasmd fails to start, so this seams to be an error.



Using openvasmd (openvasmd) 1.0.0-beta6.SVN.r7138

In recent versions there is a message to say that client server
initialisation, and https://github.com/greenbone/gvm-libs/pull/118
adds the GNUTLS error message to the openvas_server_new
warning, so it should be easier to understand now.

This error means that you have to create the credentials (a client certificate) for the manager and place it in correct the location as described in the README in openvas-manager.

I agree that the manager could output a more informative error message, but I would definitively recommend reading README files.
