Not quite! Anyone?
Authored by: freeandunmuzzled on Nov 21, '01 03:32:56AM

not wanting to have an alias to a server and the server on my desktop, i decided to skip that step and just dragged my mounted server's icon into the login items window. I fully expected the OS to report that it couldn't find 'reykjavik' (the server's name) when i logged back in, but to my surprise it automounted flawlessly!

I just tried that, and it didn't work for me. Nothing happens, no messages in the console.

What does your item look like in the Login Items list? When I first drag the volume in there, it shows up with its icon (and a kind of "Document"). After I log out and back in, its icon changes to a plain piece of paper icon. I have no idea if that has anything to do with anything.

after posting that message i realised that something else is causing my server to automount! i tried dragging another volume (actually a partition on the same server) into the login window and on logging in the volume failed to mount and i saw the same thing you describe in the login window. i have since removed both volumes from the login window. for some reason the first volume is always mounted when i login. it's a mystery!

I think it's because when you FIRST connect the 'desired' volume,
you have to'remember the password in the connect dialog box'
doing so will add it to your keychain.
this is what I did and (I made a folder called aliases in wich are all my differents networks volumes) Each time I double-click on an alias, the volume automaticly mount on the desktop without any dialog window. :)

So doing the same and putting then an alias
in your /home/library/StartupItems/ could be the solution.
considering you've added it in your Keychain…before
At least I tried it before writing here, and it worked as I logged in.
All my machines do have static IPs.

What I wish would be to know How the hell, I can put those aliases volumes in the 'Network'. I only see here my computer.
