Automount SAMBA (Windows) share points at boot
Authored by: zubin on Nov 02, '04 10:02:07PM

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

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

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.
