Many thanks to :
My original question was :
How can I resize a partition . My /usr is too large and I
want to reduce the size of this partition and create a new partition with
the excess I generate.
If you do not use a volume manager ( disksuite or VM ) the only solution
to backup your /usr, boot from net or cdrom reduce the usr partition,
restore the /usr and reboot your machine.

Basically you need to backup the data from /usr and then boot single user
from a Solaris CD. Use format to repartition your disk (resize /usr, you
will probably also need to resize the partition next to it in order to
use of the new free space). Then fsck and mount the new /usr partition
/a and recover the data into /usr. Unmount /a/usr and reboot your machine.
hope this helps
Others offered basically similar things.
