Recreating the Pega 7 search index in the Exercise VM

I have registered for the Senior System Architect course and in the Senior_System_Architect_Exercise_Guide Pg. 5, it talks about how to recreate the PEGA 7 search index. After I login to the downloaded VM/system using the System Admin credentials ( ) who does have the PegaRULES:SysAdmin4 access role (Picture attached) I do the following as instructed in the Guide.

1. From the Designer Studio menu, select System > Settings > Search

2. Expand the Search Index Host Node Setting section.

I have verified that the Nodes are same. BUT in the Search Index Host Node Setting, click Add Node is DISABLED and/or UNEDITABLE. Pic attached.

Hence I am unable to enter - /opt/tomcat/work/Catalina/localhost/prweb/PegaSearchIndex - in the Search Index File Directory field which shows OOTB value of - /opt/tomcat/work/Catalina/localhost/prweb/PegaSearchIndex'. Picture attached.

As I am unable to change the above field and/or add a node and change the settings, I am not able to re-index and my search is not working.

How can I enable the indexing?
