Install Oracle prerequisite package for Oracle Database 12.1 in Solaris 11.2

For Oracle Solaris 11.2, Oracle supplies an installation package group that installs all of the software needed to support Oracle Database implementations. The package group is called:
group/prerequisite/oracle/oracle-rdbms-server-12-1-preinstall
Installing this package group creates an Oracle Database configuration on the Oracle Solaris 11.2 operating system, reducing the risk of installation errors and accelerating time-to-deployment. This package group makes sure that that all necessary packages required for a graphical interface installation of Oracle Database 12c are present on the system, regardless of the server package group (solaris-minimal-server, solaris-small-server, etc.) that was used to install Oracle Solaris.
