Hi, I just upgraded my battlestation (new hardware, new host Kali and new guests). Everything seems to be working great with the exception of Metasploit 5, which keeps crashing in my kali 2018.4 host and VM (vmware) with memory errors. Typically something like this, even though there seems to be plenty of memory (I’ve adjusted it up and down in the VM and it makes no difference):
msf5 > show auxiliary
[FATAL] failed to allocate memory
root@kalivm:~/Desktop/HTB/103# free -h
total used free shared buff/cache available
Mem: 7.8Gi 974Mi 6.0Gi 197Mi 869Mi 6.4Gi
Swap: 4.3Gi 0B 4.3Gi
This is happening on my 2018.4 kali host as well as in the VM. Maybe the hacking gods are telling me to do it by hand?
Anyone else having issues? I can’t seem to find anything on the Rapid7 github/bugs or Wiki, or anywhere else for that matter. I’m going to see if downgrading helps in the meantime. Thanks.
