10.3: A fix for local drives not mounting until user login
Authored by: gordonlbuchanan on Apr 13, '10 04:25:31PM

On my snow leopard desktop (hackintosh) I installed a 1TB drive just to use for backups. I use it for time machine on the desktop and share it over the network with two Apple laptops, also for time machine. I also use it with Winclone to back up my bootcamp partitions. When the desktop did not have anyone logged, time machine would not work on the laptops because it couldn't find the backup disk, because it wasn't mounted on the desktop. This "defaults write" version of this hint solved my problems!
