It looks as though you are not running the makeindex program. This is the program that takes you .idx file and produces the desired .ind file.
You typically need to run (pdf)latex - which will create .idx from all the index commands in your file, then makeindex, then (pdf)latex again. Of course, if you use one of the latexmk engines, this will be taken care of automatically.
