10.6: Automount Samba (Windows) shares as needed
Authored by: quaker120 on Feb 05, '10 09:49:11AM

When I try this I get a permission error, "The folder <name> can't be opened because you donít have permission to see its contents."

I assume you mean that you get a permissions error on the share folder i,e, if the mount point is /users/gordon/shares and the share name is mydocs, then you get the error on /users/gordon/shares/mydocs. Is that right? Do you have the correct userid and password for the share? Did you try rebooting after creating and editing the automount map file?

Yes, had all that in place & rebooted.

I finally solved it by setting the permissions on my local folder (/Users/myname/share) to 777, now it works.

Thanks!

I found out that you should create the full path yourself, for instance not just /Users/<name>/shares/ but also /Users/<name>/shares/mountpoint

Otherwise, you will end up with a mount point that has root access only.
