comment Solaris 11.1 x86 installing Weblogic 12.11
@dbncourt: You cannot find ld-linux.so.2 on Solaris, because Solaris is not Linux. You need to download and install the Solaris version of Weblogic, not the Linux one.

comment Solaris11 back to console boot
After disabling the gdm service, you can start X by hand via the startx command (to run as the user who runs startx), or by temporarily re-enabling the gdm service to offer a login screen to choose which user to run X as.

comment What is the procedure to check the apache version in a sun solaris machine?
Most likely because httpd is installed in a directory not in the user path. If the error is httpd: Command not found. (as I get on Solaris), run the command with the full path to the httpd binary, such as /usr/apache2/2.2/bin/httpd -v .

comment Solaris 10, When trying to run apache: ld.so.1: httpd: fatal relocation error
So it appears you have /usr/lib/libcurl.so.4 on one machine and /usr/local/libcurl.so.4 on the other. You probably want the same library on both (i.e. from the same source/package, not just in the same path).

comment How can I get numbers of CPU of Sun Solaris by command?
For numbers of cores/threads, I often do psrinfo -v | grep -c on-line which isn't the cleanest solution, but it's always worked for me.

comment Get Solaris/Linux package (from package repo) and put on server manually
While the .p5i files are just references to a remote repository, you can make .p5p files from Solaris 11 packages that contain the entire contents and install from them. But again, without root access, that would just give you a bunch of files expecting to be installed in a directory you can't put them in.
