Changing the autosys database password

Looking at the man page for autosys_secure I see the following blurb...

 


Running autosys_secure

Before using autosys_secure to change the database password or the remote authentication method, you must shut down all processes that access the database (for example, schedulers,
GUIs, and agents) and ensure that no jobs are running.

 

Am I reading this right?   In order to change the database password I have to shutdown the scheduler and all 800 agents?   No wonder we haven't done this in so long.   Is this correct?   Can anyone confirm?
