Is there a proper way to shutdown a secondary Gitlab Geo Node

Hello everyone,

I need to patch one of my Gitlab Geo nodes, and I was just curious if there was a proper way to shutdown a secondary gitlab geo node? Should I shutdown both the primary and secondary nodes at the same time to patch the secondary or is it okay to leave the primary node running while the secondary is shutdown?

I would take a look at the Gitlab docs, it seems to explain there how to do it: Upgrading the Geo sites | GitLab

I apologize, should have been more specific. The patches I need to apply are OS security patches. I was able to fully upgrade my Geo nodes to the latest gitlab version.
