Checkpoint : How to change Date and time in Secureplatform from CLI??

Login to Linux box as root and enter root's password:
[me@mybox me]$ su

Check the current date and time of the Linux box by entering:
[root@mybox me]# date
Linux yields the current settings:

[root@mybox me]# Wed Apr 7 12:03:45 EDT 2004
Change the current time and date of the Linux box by entering:
[root@mybox me]# date 040713032004
would change the time and yield:
[root@mybox me]$ Wed Apr 7 13:03:00 EDT 2004


One more option:

Linux Set Date

Use the following syntax to set new data and time:date set="STRING"

For example, set new data to 2 Oct 2006 18:00:00, type the following command as
root user:# date -s "2 OCT 2006 18:00:00"
