These are the map options which work with geoserver wms fine. I want to serve geowebcache layers using geoserver 2.5 with the integrated GWC. I have created a cached layer using the resolutions as they are defined above. In GWC the layer preview works OK and displays the layer as expected, but when I integrate the layer into the openlayers client, pink tiles are displayed. The resolutions seem indeed to differ from those defined by the normal wms layers. Have I forgotten something? Why don´t the resolutions match? The DPI is 96 by the way.

The URL of a wms tile which displays fine in zoomlevel 8 is:


If I change the URL to point to the GWC layer but keep the BBOX extents the same I get the following error:

400: Unable to match requested SRS EPSG:31467 to those supported by layer
  • after setting my client options to exactly those in the source code of the layer preview in geoserver, I am now getting the following error: 400: The requested tile dimensions 266x266 do not match those of the grid set (256x256)????? How can this be? – Robert Buckley May 16 '14 at 22:50
  • What is the gutter size set to in "Default Caching Options for GeoServer Layers"? – BradHards May 17 '14 at 2:08
  • gutter size is 0 - Haven´t altered it since installation – Robert Buckley May 17 '14 at 5:56
