Actions:Schedule Indexing grayed out (unavailable for connectors)

Hi Folks,

I have launched the Connector Administration Cockpit for the first time and created a connector for MATERIAL. The next step is to schedule indexing, however this option seems to be grayed out in the cockpit. When I select other connectors that are available by default (software component SAP Enterprise Extension - Vendor Master Data for example), the Actions button is grayed out too.

Has anyone encountered this problem before?

I have followed the prerequisite steps in sap help: and have connected AS ABAP to TREX.

    Whats the status of Connector?? Ideally it should be 'Prepared ' status.

    If its Error while Preparing or something.. recreate connector and wait for sometime..refresh browser and then Check status..

    • The moment you click Create Connector of any object

      two possible scnerios

      1. New>Error while Preparing--Generally Modelling issue

      2. New > Preparing > Prepared--Once it has status Prepared then you select connector and click

      Schedule Indexing

      Again two possible scenarios

      1. Error while Indexing--Extraction/Modelling issue

      2. Indexing>Active-Once it has status Active means You can start search for particular objects.

      Do you see any numbers in 'Optimized' column in esh_cockpit ? if it has any numbers means you will find some results in esh_search_test.
