The blog is "oracleracexpert" but the notes on Incrementally Updated backups at http://www.oracleracexpert.com/2011/12/rman-incrementally-updated-backups.html are NOT necessarily for RAC.
The backup is done to '/oradata/rman/backup.%u' which may not be a filesystem accesible by all the notes.
If you really want to implement Incrementally Updated Backups with the ability to SWITCH DATABASE TO COPY for a RAC environment, your backup destination must
(a) asupported Cluster FileSystem (*not* Oracle ACFS which is not to be used for Database Files)
(b) an ASM DiskGroup accessible by all the nodes.
