Please post you zone configuration. By default, /opt isn't inherited by sparse zones.

You cannot write a file belonging to a package sitting in one of the inherit-pkg-dir by design. If you need otherwise, use a whole root zone.

Use "create -b" to create the zone.

You explicitely added /opt as an inherit package directory and that makes that directory read-only on that zone by design.
If you still want a sparse root zone, recreate it without adding /opt. If you don't care about that zone being sparse, recreate your zone as a whole root zone (create -b).
