I need to change time from BST to GMT on our sun solaris web server - SUN V220. Could any one let me know how can I do that ?

I think Date command might be giver unpredictable results...

I tried zoneadm list -v command to check zone but it doesn't show anything..

You need to do the followings:

For a list of the TIMEZONE you can use have a look at:
ls /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo
1. edit /etc/TIMEZONE file, change the TZ variable (I've done this)
  you might need to change the LC_TIME var if required

2.reboot

3. use "date" command to change the time to the local time.

man date
to learn more details.

There are 2 steps that you need to follow:
1.  Did you look in the /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo to see if the appropriate file exists.  If not, you need to use the /usr/sbin/zic to create it.
2.  Then edit the /etc/TIMEZONE.  You have to reboot the system because all child processes of init use the original setting when it was started.
