Hi Florian,

Are you using docker-compose and the link strategy? In such a case I'd suggest to have a look at the work already done by the team under the github repos django-docker, geoserver-docker, nginx-docker, data-docker

I am going through the tutorial about 'GeoNode (v2.4) installation on  
Ubuntu 14.04'  
in order to setup GeoNode v2.5.x  
(https://github.com/GeoNode/geonode/tree/2.5.x) in an LXD container on  
Ubuntu 16.04. When running GeoNode and GeoServer in the same container -  
i.e., with an identical IP address - everything works fine.

However, my overall goal is to have GeoNode run on one machine, and  
GeoServer on another. Therefore, I installed GeoServer in a second LXD  
container just like before. Then, I modified
1. /var/lib/tomcat7/webapps/geoserver/WEB-INF/web.xml, changing  
parameter GEONODE_BASE_URL to the IP address and port of the GeoNode  
container, and
2. did the same for parameter baseUrl in  
as described in the tutorial's subsection 'Install GeoServer  

Furthermore, in the initial GeoNode container, I modified parameters  
ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse in  
/etc/apache2/sites-available/geonode.conf to match with the new IP  
address of the GeoServer container  
and did the same for the OGC_SERVER settings in GeoNode's local_settings.py.

Now, I can login to GeoNode as admin. When I open the admin menu in the  
top-right corner and select GeoServer, I am redirected to the desired  
GeoServer as expected. However, the automatic login - which initially  
worked when both components ran in the same container - fails, letting  
me assume that there's something going wrong during the authentication  

Any advice on that issue would be highly appreciated. In addition,  
please let me know if further information, log files, etc. are required  
in order to solve my problem.

Many thanks in advance,
