I'm getting an error while importing metadata to geonetwork (picture below):

enter image description here

TransformerConfigurationException Failed to compile stylesheet. 1 error detected.

I would like to see the details about the error, but I can't find the error log. GeoNetwork is installed on localhost (Tomcat).

Usually it is in catalina.out and geonetwork.log in Tomcat's logs folder. In a Linux system with Tomcat installed from the distribution packages they usually are in /var/log/tomcat${TOMCAT_VERSION} folder.

  • Thanks! Found the error I was looking for in Tomcat9.0/logs folder in tomcat9-stderr.2019-07-03.log Commented Jul 3, 2019 at 8:54
