I installed Pentaho 8.1 EE version in window Server 2008 when i open PDI then there was no connect button through which i established the connection to the repository.
After searching into google I found an article in Hitachi vantara website.
Where someone encountered the same problem. In that article, I found the problem is with this directory "design-tools\data-integration\system\karaf\caches\spoon" where I found the data1 folder. After deleting that folder while i restart spoon then i will able to see connect button and also able to connect with the repository.
After that, i close my spoon and if i am again starting spoon then again i am not able to see that connect button.
Can someone help me out?
