First you have to stop the redefinition process using
dbms_redefinition.finish_redef_table or
dbms_redefinition.abort_redef_table
Then you have to correct the error of max extents in your index CSUH_CUSTOM.ACTIVITY_ACCUMULATOR_PK_NEW
Increase the max extents using ALTER INDEX .... STORAGE command to a reasonable value and start the redefinition process again
