That's better than the other way around, but since you don't want to
loose your data integrity (and might want to restart either one as primary) 
you should get them first into "Secondary/Secondary Consistent" state.
Than you can shootdown either one first :-)

Stop your cluster manager (heartbeat?) in advance - the primary at last. 
It should bring the devices right into Secondary/Secondary.
