If you’re on PeopleTools 8.53 and have deployed PeopleSoft Search Framework, you may come across this situation where you get the error “EQA-13000: Operation “delete” Cannot Be Performed on an Object Type “schedule” in State “EXECUTING”. ( 262,1018)”.
I experienced this situation when I had to cancel the Search Index processes on the Process Monitor page after it had run over the weekend. Then when I wanted to re-deploy or undeploy the Index, I received the error, which essentially said that I can’t run or undeploy because the process is still executing.
- Signon to the SES console and go to Failed Schedules.
- Delete the failed Schedules and Source for the appropriate index.
- Signon to PeopleSoft and run Report Sync Issues on the index from the Deploy/Delete page.
- Try to undeploy and reapply the index again.
