Based on your comment, it sounds as if you have an indexer cluster and two search heads. Clustering two search heads is not a supported configuration, so I am going to assume that you just have the indexer cluster and two search heads.

If that is correct, then you should follow the procedure Upgrade a cluster > Upgrade to a new maintenance release in the Managing Indexers and Clusters of Indexers manual.

It does not matter when you upgrade the deployment server. You can't upgrade clusters with the deployment server. Use that for your forwarders, which you can have on an entirely separate upgrade schedule.

There is a general topic about Upgrading your distributed environment in the Distributed Deployment Manual.

It's really easy to do, just follow the steps, and hit up the community if you run into issues or errors.
