Not here. Sysadmins do the install with Dba's sitting with them. This is because of needing root priv.  

And let's face it. Performing an Oracle install does not require much skill. It is basic and straightforward. There are not too many options that are difficult to figure out.

I agree, hence the rather large number of comments about the necessity to run and it's various cousins. If it was always the sysadmin doing the install (and presumably Oracle patching and all the rest of it).

I do not understand why you, as a dba, need to install software on a server. This is the job of the server administrator. We build a script that use silent install and checks the results and give this script to the administrators.
They call us only when problems arise.
This method save a lot more time for us as we do not install. It also saves a lot of time for them, as all they have to do is run the script and then come later and checks if it finished OK.
