When trying to change RETENTION of a LOB (BasicFiles), ORA-43856 error is returned.



The customer has been using Automated Undo Management (AUM) and BasicFiles Lob. and they found that RETENTION attribute of the lob segment is set to the same value as undo_retention instance parameter (10,800 in case of the customer) and the value on the lob segment looks unnecessarily (high)long for them.
