The inability to rebuild the FND_LOBS intermedia index rarely merits a SEV1 as the sole purpose of this is to to provide
indexing on the online help that most customers can do without for awhile.  Problems can occur when generating this index because, as a side effect, the aflobbld.sql script tends to also index the FNDATTCH data and many customers find that wasteful.  These problems include the aflobbld.sql script (which is executed by the concurrent request "Rebuild Help Search Index") running for an extremely long time (over two hours) and the FND_LOBS_U1 and FND_LOBS_CTX taking enormous amounts of space (millions of rows).

It is possible to index JUST the FND_HELP entries.
