As far as I know, there is no way other than restarting every process 
either one by one, or by rebooting the system.

The fact that Solaris handles the change from standard time to daylight 
time and back transparently suggests that there may be a way but I don't 
know what it is.

You would do better to ask a question like this in a more appropriate 
news group; say comp.unix.solaris or comp.sys.sun.admin.
