How to increase the /var (UFS) filesystem and root disk under veritas control?

I need to increase the /var (UFS) filesystem and root disk under veritas control or root disk is encapsulated
Code:
# df -k /var
Filesystem            kbytes    used   avail capacity  Mounted on
/dev/vx/dsk/var      13241195 12475897 674524    96%    /var

# fstyp /dev/vx/dsk/var
ufs
# pkginfo -l VRTSvxvm
   PKGINST:  VRTSvxvm

# vxdg -g rootdg free
DISK         DEVICE       TAG          OFFSET    LENGTH    FLAGS
rootdisk     c1t0d0s2     c1t0d0       0         61055     -
rootdisk     c1t0d0s2     c1t0d0       161983467 124634705 -

Please let me know the right process as I know vxresize command and done increasing the vxfs filesystem many times but I think for increasing the ufs filesystem in veritas control has some different process.

After the disk volume has grown use growfs.
