Deployment Architecture

When upgrading the Splunk deployment, can we upgrade replicated indexers first in maintenance mode?

I have a questions regarding the upgrade

  1. Can we upgrade the replicated indexers first in maintenance mode?
  2. Can we upgrade the deployment server independently of the indexers to save time?
