    Hi Guys,

    Im doing something very similar here, but cant get the shares to appear on the clients even though I have added them to Login Items (with user/pass auth).

    They are samba based shares that appear as per the previous screenshot but with smb:// instead of afp://

    They work on the dock if I add them to the Documents and Folders section of Dock Items.


    Thoughts?

    You want them on the desktop? There is a finder option to show mounts.

    Update:

    The shares appear on the dock on 10.5.8 iMacs, but not the older 10.4.11 iMacs.

    Xserve is 10.4.11.


    nicklec: Thanks Nick, is this option in the Workgroup Manager or is it on the iMacs? Im a bit of an mac newbie :P

    Is there anyway once you mount a item/share you can make it appear in the Devices list within Finder?

    When students goto save work they currently have to navigate via the shares server.. find the folder etc. Be nice if they had quick access!

    Anyone have luck with this? This is why I don't mount AD student shares. If they are in word they cannot navigate to their share via the finder without having to go to the server mount which then shows them hundreds & hundreds of user folder.... though once they find their users ID, it's the only folder they can access & open. Having the share just mount in the dock does not work for this type of environment if you want to save a new file. Great if you just want to open a file.

    If you are using Networked-based accounts the documents folder in the sidebar takes them straight to their Documents folder within their Home folder. To check this, open the documents folder as a user than then while holding down the Apple/cmd key click on the icon across the top of the window. This will show you the path to that folder. It should be something like:

    machine-name > HDD > Network > Servers alias > Server name > Home Share > Users home dir > Documents.

    I have tested this before but it's the home folder that it uses, not the documents folder. The problem with this is that if the user downloads anything, places anything on the desktop it's all going to get uploaded/downloaded to the users share as all the home folders are sitting under/in the share.
