Can't really see that image (attachment) very well. Can you please cut & paste the error to a post.

There should be no problems putting a legacy (branded) Solaris 9 zone on Solaris 10.

You'd do better to follow guidance direct from Oracle:-
About Oracle Solaris 9 Branded Zones - System Administration Guide: Oracle Solaris 9 Containers

Having said that, the tutorial that you posted the link to looks pretty good too.

It is an access rights issue. p2v cannot create the required directory tree before populating it with the migrating data.

Check out the access rights on the mount point. Open the rights up, at least whilst executing p2v.

What user account are you running under???? (root or sudo would be best to circumvent access rights issues)
