10.4: One way to automount SMB network shares
Authored by: drm0223 on May 05, '07 08:22:59AM

I have no luck using 'mount volume' in AScript or using Automator to mount an nfs:// or cifs:// volume. This is the volume type WesternDigital NetCenter uses with it's Shared Volumes. I can use their utility and I can mount the volume using the Finder's Go/Connect To Server menu, as well as double click on an alias.

In AScript I get a network file permission error when trying to mount the nfs:// format, both w and w/o including my username and pw in the 'mount volume' command, and an error of type -36 when trying to mount the cifs:// format.

I would like to be able to script this or use Automator and welcome any suggestions.
