10.4 Server: Another way to mount shares at login
Authored by: iamdw on Jan 12, '06 01:19:55PM

I've managed apply a similar method using a client computers User's account prefpane login items.

The steps are nearly identical with the only difference being the process is done on the client machine with the shares on a Mac Os X 10.4.4 server box and a plain old Dell Dimension 4700:

  • Mount the shares (in my case AFP stylee from Tiger Server and SMB from Dell) on the client machine, and make sure you tick all the "remember my authentication whatnots".
  • Open up the Accounts Prefpane and drag the shares into the pane
  • Quit the System Preferences app

I've successfully been able to mount both the Tiger Server AFP shares as well as the Dell SMB shares. This seems almost too easy, but hey, i'm on a Mac so…

Please let me know if you're having any trouble getting this to work.

hope to help,

Can you clarify step 2? Does it mean to drag icons for network-mounted volumes/folders into the Login Items tab for a user's Accounts preferences? That works but I haven't done a logout/login cycle to test if it mounts.

Ignore my post. I just re-read the first sentence of yours and got the answer.
