I have two servers in a cluster. I want to take the Publisher offline and upgrade from 3.3.4 to 4.1. When I bring the server online the phone will switch from subscriber to publisher. My question is will the phone resets and does a software upgrade or will the phone retains the old phone load and continue to work.

I highly recommend doing the firmware prior to the server upgrade, (unless you are going from 4 to 5 and switching to SIP, then you can't), all the latest firmware versions are compatible from 3.1 to 5.0, they just hide the features that are unavailable. I have done this in the past and it was a lot better . No matter how good your bandwith is, in most cases you're going to have a ton of the same phone trying to get the same file from the same servers and the servers just don't like that
