In Node 1,

[oracle@prodrac1 ~]$ ls -lrt /u01/app/12.1.0/grid/oraInst.loc
-rw-r—– 1 root root 55 Sep 21 2018 /u01/app/12.1.0/grid/oraInst.loc

In Node 2,

[oracle@prodrac2 ~]$ ls -lrt /u01/app/12.1.0/grid/oraInst.loc
-rw-r—– 1 oracle oinstall 127 Sep 21 2018 /u01/app/12.1.0/grid/oraInst.loc

 The ownership of oraInst.loc inside <grid home> was different on both Nodes
Solution :
Ensure the ownership of <GRID HOME>/oraInst.loc is proper across each Node.If incorrect, then change the Ownership to Grid User & re-run opatchauto.
