Epicor 9 Global Parts

We have setup the multi-company partners, initialized the global parts, set the global table and ran multi-company direct for multi-companies all on the same database but when we create the global parts and run multi-company direct when we go to the part/integration the global link is greyed out. Works fine in E10 and Kinetics now

Does anyone recall additional steps in E9 progress to get global parts working?
