    As you said you have RAC (9.2.0.3) currently running, then First take full Export of your database before applying this patch (For Safety). Then apply it on one node. I guess oracel will then transfer it to the other nodes as it does same at the end of oracle Software Installation.
    It will also modify the Cluster manager. I have set up RAC but not applied Patch set to it. But I have read about this while I was Installing RAC.

    Had successfully patching the RAC Database to 9.2.0.4

    pre-install:
    1. need to set database_cluster=flase

    install:
    1. one file need to chown to oracle:dba

    post-install:
    1. set database_cluster=true


    btw: does it need to patch the client software on client pc?
