Section 3.3.3 of patch README says that this a rolling patch upgrade:
- if each cluster node has its own (i.e. not shared) GRID_HOME and ORACLE_HOME just follow section 3.3.3.
- if GRID_HOME and/or ORACLE_HOME are shared by the 2 cluster nodes you cannot do a rolling upgrade.
The ORACLE_HOME's are not shared between "cluster nodes". The RDBMS_ORACLE_HOME is being shared by 3 databases. For that I assume that patching in a rolling manner does not seems practical.
I don't understand the difference between ORACLE_HOME and RDBMS_ORACLE_HOME in your case.
ORACLE_HOME is the generic name for directory tree where Oracle Database executables are installed.
If ORACLE_HOME is shared between your 2 cluster nodes you cannot use rolling upgrade. Here sharing means sharing by cluster nodes and not by databases: if ORACLE_HOME is only shared by some databases on same cluster node and if ORACLE_HOME is not shared by different cluster nodes then you can use rolling upgrade.
