Change Date in Linux/Unix/Aix

First of all ,you need to login as root user to change datetime in your Linux/Unix/Aix System. Execute this single command and reset system date.

date MMddhhmmccyy
MM : Month (two-digit numeric month)
dd : Day (two-digit numeric day i.e. day of month)
hh : Hour (two-digit twenty four hours format)
mm : Minutes (two-digit)
cc : First two digits of the year (two-digit)
yy : Last two digits of the year (two-digit).

For instance, for 1st January, 2012 6:15 AM it will be like 010106152012.

date 010106152012
