Increase OOTB YFS_REPROCESS_ERROR.ERRORMESSAGE columns size to 5M

The current YFS_REPROCESS_ERROR.ERRORMESSAGE columns size is only 1M and is bit small to handle a big message when dealing with dataload related tasks.  Under error condition, customer is seeing large number of exceptions in the log indicated -302 error on  YFS_REPROCESS_ERROR table and unable to handle it with retries.

Though it is possible to ask customer to manually increase this column  size, it will be preferred to introduce a bigger size(ex 5M) as the  OOTB configuraiton. It will have very little impact to the product as the storage will only be used when a message requires such big size.  There are many similar cases been reported by customers, this change can help to reduce the debug/support effort for both customer and OMS support teams.

What is your industry? Retail
How will this idea be used?

This would allow larger message to be captured in the YFS_REPROCESS_ERROR table instead of a -302 exception due to the column size issue.
