Starting up Metasploit Framework in Kali Linux 2.0 (Sana)

Lack of updates, I know, I'm still busy. Today's entry is a direct copy and paste from the Kali site. In case you missed it (like I did) Kali 2.0 handles Metasploit a bit different, its no longer a service. This is mostly just a reminder for me. Without further ado, the copy/paste.

Due to the above-mentioned changes in the metasploit-framework package, there are some minor changes in how Metasploit is started in Kali – specifically, there is no longer a metasploit service. This is how you start up the Metasploit Framework with database support in Kali Linux 2.0:

# Start the Postgresql Database
/etc/init.d/postgresql start

# Initialize the Metasploit Framework Database
msfdb init

# Run msfconsole

# Rebuild Cache (if necessary)
msf > db_rebuild_cache
