Abbas,
The output of the du (in the file attached) look like the output of the du -sk /var/adm and your problem is in /usr. The /usr and /var are in different filesystems.
First, you have to look inside /usr/cluster directory. Or look into /usr/users.

I hope that will help you.

Re: vmunix: /usr: write failed, file system is full

I am with Larry...

I looks like /usr is full and the attached output does not look like a /usr but /var.

So retry du -sk /usr.

For unexpected/sudden fill up I would also suspect a single (log) file getting out of control. So I would try a command to look for large files. Maybe 10m is already enough to limit the output to a screen full. Maybels -l you need 50000k on your system:

find /usr -size +10000k -exec ls -l {} \;

And look around for core files/directories:
find /usr -name core

Finally... Where does /tmp go on the system?
ls -l /tmp

hth,
Hein.
