DukeNuke is referring to mt command.
Do you have Solaris OS DVD placed on server ?
Also, what is output of
fstyp /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0s0

it's always bad to just use commands and not know what they are doing...

Yes, the Solaris OS is in the Drive.
I used it to boot into single user mode to make changes in /etc/system and vfstab
fstyp /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0s0

I do not /var in your earlier output. Do you have older output of "df -h" ? Give me output of below command
du -sh /var
df -h
touch /root/test321
touch /var/tmp/test321
