10.4: One way to automount SMB network shares
Authored by: codingismy11to7 on Feb 07, '07 09:11:15AM

Same with my Macbook Pro.

So...I wrote a Python script that is run every 2 minutes (or maybe every minute, i can't remember). It has a list of shares and mountpoints. If they're mounted, the script exits. If not, then it pings the hosts. If they're up, it then mounts the shares.

Yeah, apple needs to do some work in this area, you shouldn't have to have a CS degree to have automounted shares on portable machines.
