If I understand you question correctly, these are the steps to follow for a rolling patch install:
1. Stop the instance in node 1 and all other relevant processes (asm if running from the same home, listener, em...)
2. Install the patch with the OPatch option -local
3. Restart services from step 1
3. Repeat for other nodes.
All that is under the assumption that the patch can be installed in a rolling fashion.

HiI have a question on rolling upgrades of 2 node RAC databases.I understand while performing a rolling upgrade i need to stage the patch to a directory and just launch Opatch from that directory and Opatch would roll over the patch to the remote node and apply it there .My question is what happens to the existing and new user connections as the database is not stopped what happens when the patch is being applied to node 1a)Users are already connectted to node 1b) new users connection who are attempting to connect to node 1regardsHrishy
