Help! no way to create data source!

After insalling Jasper Server 5.6 (without the sample reports),and loggin in with jasperadmin, when we select view->repository, there are only two folders: System Properties and Themes.
There is no Data source folder, and no way or option to add a datasource.
We tried uinstalling and reinstalling, same problem.
Have tried googling - noone else seems to have this issue.
Howe do we add a datasource if there is no datasource  option or folder?

I gave up with it and uninstalled it.  then I reinstalled selecting the option to include all demos and samples.  THIS does at last give the option to add a datasource. It seems a major bug that you you cant install Jasper Server without the demos and samples.

I've encountered too many problems with bundled installation and decided to use only WAR installation. Don't have the problem you've found with WAR installation.

I got the same problem with 6.0.1. It worked after installing sample data. Thanks for providing this work-around.

Try logging in as "superuser".

Hi, I am logging in with jasperAdmin. Under user management, there does not seem to be a user called superuser. I tried logging in with superuser and superuser as pass, but says account does not exist. jasperadmin is in the admin group/role. The only other roles are user and anon.
