I had this question after viewing Solaris SUN OS 4.1.3 machine clone.

While dumping the file system and we get file system is full message, what needs to be done?
How to remove system log files, temporary files, unwanted files so that it would accommodate for the dump creation.

If still there is no space what needs to be done?

You will not be able to write a dump file onto the same filesystem that is being backed up!
If you can mount some other system via NFS you can write it there.
