Dear Muhammad,

the old version of GeoNode/GeoServer used an obsolete authentication method which therefore is no more available on the new GeoServer versions.


The exception you are experiencing are caused, most probably, by some wrong security/config.xml file on your geoserver data directory.


You should compare the security folder with the one provided with




Also you should finalize your GeoNode configuration with OAuth2 by following the guidelines here




Also this doc, nevertheless it is a bit outdated, could be useful in order to make some comparison between old configuration files and new ones

Hi All
I am migrating GeoNode 2.4 to 28. For GeoServer data migration, I took GeoServer (version 2.7) data folder from GeoNode 2.4 vm and copied it to the GeoNode 2.8 vm (GeoServer 2.12.2). Now, when I restart tomcat, GeoServer does not start. In catalina.out file I can see an exception "GeoNodeAnonymousAuthFilterConfig" but have no idea why this exception is being raised

The file /var/log/tomcat8/catalina.out shown in the following link

Thanks and best regards
