It looks fishy but I like to create some files with the Old dates.

On our unix system i used  the  touch command to set back the origal timestamp of files after migration to a new unix system.   The touch command has an optional extra argument to do so.
But I don't know if it available in the same way on solaris.

flow01 is right, in Solaris you can also use touch command, ie:

/usr/bin/touch -t yyyymmddhhmm filename
