Automount SAMBA (Windows) share points at boot
Authored by: slap on May 05, '04 08:27:29PM

here's a much more mac friendly type to mount NFS volumes on your computer. connect to the NFS (samba) server. On successful authentication a file will be generated in your account under the ~yourusername/Library/Recent Servers. Take that file and place it in your your Startup Items (Apple Menu > System Preferences > Accounts > Startup items). Logout and log back in. It will launch that file and automount your NFS volume if you have the password in your keychain otherwise it will ask for authentication.

please erase the one below.. thanks

Automount SAMBA (Windows) share points at boot
Authored by: mweymar on Jun 11, '04 10:17:43PM

You're on 10.3?... I'm on 10.2.8, and don't see Startup items under Apple Menu > System Preferences > Accounts. Or am I missing something?...

I did try sudo cp'ing the file you mention from Recent Servers to System/Library/StartupItems, however, but this does not seem to work. I.e., logging out, logging back in does not remount directory.

Again: Am I missing something?...

TIA,
Matthew

Automount SAMBA (Windows) share points at boot

what if I want the share to be mapped under different user/pass ? If I want the system to prompt for a user/pass on every login how do I do that?

After alot of hassles automounting a Windows share, I finally got it working like this:

[code]
mount volume "smb://<authDomain>;<userName>:<password>@<serverName>.<domain>/<sharePoint>"
[/code]

Whilst authDomain and domain are often the same, they weren't in my case - I wanted the authentication to be via the computer's list of users, not the domain's, and so I entered the computer name for authDomain and that worked.

This is a winner for me - thanks for such a simple solution. Works perfectly under 10.4.2 and is letting my automated backups run smoothly.

Thanks!
