To change the date and time for Solaris system, you need to login as root or su as root, then run the date command to set the date and time, eg:
command format:   date mmddHHMMYYYY
eg:    date 071611302003
          - sets the date to July 16th, 2003 - 11:30 AM
man date
to leran more details.
 
BTW,  you can use "rdate" or "ntpdate" to sync the time with a
Time server.
login as root, type in:

eg:
/usr/bin/rdate  timeservername
 /usr/sbin/ntpdate ntpserver

man rdate
man ntpdate
to learn more details.

you can put it in the crontab.
