We're currently running AE V11.2 & want to upgrade to V11.2.2 using the Zero Downtime Upgrade process but I have few concerns
1) Our DEV environment consists of one automation engine (on Linux). 
In the documentation it says we need two separate environments. Which I'm not sure I understand. 
Do I just duplicate the bin directory into another bin directory, but leave the .ini files exactly the same? 
-> The two separate environment means that you will need to have an other AE set up (a new bin directory which include the binaries for AE 11.2.2, and its ini file which mostly is the same with the old one except for the WP and CP port.)
and the original/current bin (AE 11.2) directory 
2) Our UAT environment consists of two automation engines (on Linux) in active/active license mode. 
Do we need two separate environments for each automation engine in this setup? 
-> Let say you have AE 11.2 in Machine 1, and 2
so you need to have at least one separate environment (AE11.2.2) in either machine 1 or 2, but We recommend to have separate environment for both
