This means what it says - you have run out of inodes. Do df -i /var
and you will see all your inodes have been used up.
The number of inodes is fixed at newfs time. This really leaves you
1.You can either find some files on /var which are no longer wanted
and delete them, thus freeing up inodes.
2. You can dump the file system, and recreate it using a
different-than-the-default inode density. man newfs and look at -i for
3.You evidently have lots on space on /home so move a lot of files
(preferably a single directory containing lots of file) to /home from
/var and symlinking it.
