Using Applescript to mount SMB shares
Authored by: JoePrecious on Nov 20, '03 02:21:15PM

This is exactly what I need and works great.

Just one question (from an AppleScript newbie):-

Can you tell it not to actually open the Finder window as it now does it everytime I log in?

Thanks

Solution: No Finder Window

Use the following Applescript to mount smb drives in the background without opening Finder windows. The mount point is automatically created in the /Volumes directory.
try
   mount volume "smb://user@server/share"
end try
For a user with a login name of "forman" on a server called "vortex" with SMB shares called "local" and "scratch" use the following script:
try
   mount volume "smb://forman@vortex/local"
   mount volume "smb://forman@vortex/scratch"
end try
Save the script as an application using the Script Editor and put it in System Preferences -> Accounts -> Startup Items to mount the drives when you log in.

Michael.
