IMHO, is safe to be executed while Oracle is running. I think that on AIX 6 it doesn't need to load any kernel extension as on lower AIX levels. In any case, if the script needs Oracle to be shut down or the server to be restarted, it will tell you. So you can run it now - if it finishes OK, you are done. If it tells you that you must stop Oracle or reboot, you can plan it.
