Network Drive shortcut
I wondered if someone would be able to help, currently we have a network drive being shared out via our Win Server 2008 and wanted this to be accessable on the users areas when logged into an OSX machine. Currently users are finding this drive quite hard to find and i wanted to know if it was possible to either add it into all the users docks or maybe on their desktops, whichever is easiest. All the Macs are linked through our Mac OSX server.
You can mount the network share then add it on the login part of work group managers preferences for the group you want to manage.. Then you can add a dock item to the mount.
Hi, you can do this via WorkGroup Manager.
If you login on one of your client computers, open up WGM. Connect the drive you want for all users using the Go > Connect to Server method.
In WGM browse to the computer group/user group you want to manage, select Preferences, select Login, select Items. Set to manage Always, and drag your mapped drive over from the desktop in to the WGM window. Here you can also select other options such as Authenticating with the user's login details etc.
Hope this helps.
