Q

Can I apply support packages while users are online?

Is it a bad idea to start importing supporting packages in the development server when users are online?
It's always best to import support packages while the system is totally quiet. That is, there are no users on the system. It's very likely that they will get program terminations if they do work while support packages are being imported. To ensure consistency and to get better performance, I strongly recommend you import them in your development box after working hours. Or, work out a schedule with your developers so you have enough time during the day to import the patches.
