Getting admin role in solaris 11

Hi,
As shown below, I am unable to execute certain commands on our Solaris 11 machine.
I think that it is an issue with my privileges. I know the root password.
Could someone tell me what are the privileges I should assign to my user and how?

For example:
-bash-4.1$ usermod
-bash: usermod: command not found

bash-4.1$ roles
root
-bash-4.1$ id
uid=102(user) gid=10(staff)

    Try /usr/sbin/usermod or /sbin/usermod. Though i worry about you having the power if you do not do know this. Please be aware this is a guess my me.

    As was already indicated this is probably a path error more than it is a permissions problem.

    You might want to invest in some beginners type book for either Solaris or Linux.
