Hi

The change will take effect after rebooting the system, if you wanna change with set_parms.

#man set_parms

Oops pasted in wrong place.

If you want to change your system date, you use the date(1) command. set_parms(1M) date_time says:
The change takes effect immediately.

>is there any way to know which command reboots the system and which does not?

set_parms(1M) mentions which needs rebooting.
Generally only swinstall(1m), shutdown(1m) and reboot(1m) does.

You obviously believe what set_parms(1M) says. But better yet, you use date(1).

Some of the set_parms(1M) parms do require a reboot.
