Trying to make a file system read-only by default but Openserver 6.0 is not
cooperating.

If I leave the "Device File:" blank (as it is on entry), and select the "v"
in the "Access Mode:" field, the choices are Read-write and Read-only.

I select "Read-Only" then select the Device File and the Access Mode
switches from read-only to read-write. File system /dev/oldsys is type vxfs.

Trying "mkdev fs" (as I have on 5.0.x) and answering the questions as shown
below:

Enter a device name and press or q to quit: /dev/oldsys
Enter a directory name and press or q to quit: /oldsys
Reserving slots in lost+found directory ...

When entering multiuser mode:
1. Always mount /dev/oldsys.
2. Never mount /dev/oldsys.
3. Prompt before mounting /dev/oldsys.

Select an option: 2

Do you want to allow users to mount this file system? (y/n) n
Updating system files ...
Filesystem has been successfully added.


But then...

# mount /dev/oldsys
UX:mount: ERROR: cannot determine special device
# mount oldsys
UX:mount: ERROR: cannot determine special device

But the following works:

# mount /dev/oldsys /oldsys
