Is it ok to apply patches to remote POs and agents before doing the MTA? I have the MTA and main PO running on Linux in my corporate office, running 8.0.2 HP 3. I have POs and agents running on separate Netware servers running 8.0.2 HP 3 in remote offices. I would like to apply 8.0.3 HP1 to the remote offices and then do the corporate location. Main reason being I can do the remote offices during the day and I will need to do the corporate office after hours. Does anyone see a problem with this path?

Note the difference between update and patching. Updating to a full new release (e.g from GW8 to GW2012) follows your rules. Patching within the same major GW version does *usually* not though, unless specifically stated in the patch.
It is good practice to patch the primary first, then domains than POs, but it's not technically required.
