v8.1 Alternate FP7 installation quesiton

P: n/a
I was reading the FixPackReadme.txt file in preparation for installing v8.1
Alternate FP7. The prerequisites section says that all DB2 processes must be
stopped and doesn't differentiate between regular an alternate fixpacks. I
was hoping the alternate fixpack would help to avoid downtime. Do you really
need to stop all DB2 process for alternate fixpack installations?

In my experience, in applying the alternate FP's there is no need to stop
all the db2 processes. I have some 10 different instances running on my
server and have not had a problem to date.
