Question mark in dock for network folder
I've set up our 10.6.8 clients to have a couple of shared network folders showing in their dock (next to the users home folder)
All users have at least Read access to these folders, or Read/Write in some cases. The odd thing is when a user logs in the icons appear as question marks and stay like that until you click them once, then they eventually show up as a 'hard drive' icon, before finally showing as a 'folder' icon. You can't actually open the folder until it turns into the folder icon.
I assume this is something to do with the way the mac is authenticating with the Windows server where the share is located - but is there a way I can improve this, or automate it so the user doesn't have to click the icon and wait?
