Not necessarily Zoltan

Do your two Library managers clients to each other?  If so then yes, you
have to upgrade both at once.  However if they do not then you can do each
separately.

I have a similar setup, but the two LMs offsite each other's database
backups using server-to-server rather than remotely mounted tapes.  Since
they are LMs-only the databases are quite small.

By using server-to-server I get around the mutual dependency.
