#The following example applies a patch with an unzipped patch location to all applicable Oracle homes on the system:
opatch auto <patch_location>

#The following example rolls back the patch from all the applicable Oracle homes on the system:
opatch auto -rollback <patch_location>

#The following example patches a selective list of Oracle homes:
opatch auto <patch_location> -oh /tmp/oh1,/tmp/oh2,/tmp/oh3
