Regarding your comment that this is a "off-the-shelf application that you can't touch": adding custom-built indexes generally does not violate support for 3rd-party off-the-shelf applications. The main requirement is usually that you build them in such a way that they are easily identifiable, easily dropped and re-created, and not created so as to disrupt product patching, etc. I'm sure lots of folks on this list have lots of advice on this, covering a wide variety of COTS apps. Perhaps someone on this list is managing the same application as well?
Please verify with your application vendor on their policies for support for custom-built indexes?
Hope this helps...
