I installed geonode following this instructions: http://docs.geonode.org/en/master/tutorials/install_and_admin/geonode_install/ In the end it say that if you log-in in geonode then geoserver is also authenticated, but in my case that did not happend. So I follow this instructions to configure the OAuth2 http://docs.geonode.org/en/master/tutorials/admin/geoserver_geonode_security/index.html and the test conection worked well. The thing is that when I try to update the style of a layer I get the error: "There was an error saving the style back to the server".

Apache logs says:

[wsgi:error] [pid 6886:tid 140619259516672] Internal Server Error: /gs/rest/styles/line.xml


[wsgi:error] [pid 6886:tid 140619259516672] File "/home/geonode/geonode/geonode/geoserver/signals.py", line 133, in geoserver_pre_save [wsgi:error] [pid 6886:tid 140619259516672]
'type': None} [wsgi:error] [pid 6886:tid 140619259516672] AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'attribution'

Geoserver logs says:

(When sudo service tomcat8 restart)

INFO [geoserver.global] - Falling back to embedded data directory: /var/lib/tomcat8/webapps/geoserver/data

WARN [geoserver.config] - Error reading resource URL [jar:file:/var/lib/tomcat8/webapps/geoserver/WEB-INF/lib/gs-geofence-server-2.9-SNAPSHOT.jar!/geofence-default-override.properties] java.io.FileNotFoundException: URL [jar:file:/var/lib/tomcat8/webapps/geoserver/WEB-INF/lib/gs-geofence-server-2.9-SNAPSHOT.jar!/geofence-default-override.properties] cannot be resolved to absolute file path because it does not reside in the file system: jar:file:/var/lib/tomcat8/webapps/geoserver/WEB-INF/lib/gs-geofence-server-2.9-SNAPSHOT.jar!/geofence-default-override.properties


(When update the style)

ERROR [geoserver.security] - Could not Authorize OAuth2 Resource due to the following exception: org.springframework.web.client.ResourceAccessException: I/O error on POST request for "http://localhost:8000/api/o/v4/tokeninfo/?access_token=gFq6vD2g21eNMAQ9HILSsNEwqXo8Gb": Connection refused (Connection refused); nested exception is java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused (Connection refused)


Could you give some recommendations, what things should I check?

Make sure tomcat has write access to geoserver_data directory.

chown -R tomcat:tomcat /var/lib/tomcat8/webapps/geoserver/data
chmod -R 777 /var/lib/tomcat8/webapps/geoserver/data
