I was having an issue with my 5.9 solaris not booting up , this was due to /var being full. I was able to decrease /var and login. I notice I took the defaults when installing solaris 9 on a 40gb drive and only allowed 56mb of space for /var and 36gb for /export/home.
I'm not using LVM nor Veritas
The output of my /etc/vfstab is :

What would be the best course of action to decrease /export/home and increase /var by 6gb. This is a test box so I'm not concern about the amout of space for /export/home.
I would prob increase swap as well.
