Solaris 9 branded zones with VCS 6.0.1

This issue has been solved. See solution.

After going through the upgrade process from SFHA 5.1 to 6.0.1, I've come to find out that 6.0.1 dropped support for branded zones. What is the fix for this? I have 9 different Solaris 9 branded zones that cannot be upgraded because of legacy applications. These zones all worked with no problem with SFHA 5.1. I'm still able to manually start the zones outside of the cluster, but that defeats the purpose of having a cluster.

I don't want to have to downgrade back to SFHA 5.1 if I can help it, but that's the only option I see at this point.

The automated preupgrade checks passed with no mention of dropping support for these zones. The zones were running at the time.
