Mounting shares directory to required folder?
I am looking for a solution on automatically creating a link directly to our users active directory home folder so that they are easily able to save their documents from applications.
At this time we have a 10.6.7 server using Workgroup manager and our clients are 10.7 - we have the clients set up to save locally (a request of the departments due to the size of the files they use) with their AD home drives mapping on the dock.
Our Home drives are structured like:
If you try to save through any applications you are unable to access the Studentname folder directly and are forced to navigate from //server which is impossible as we have over 150 accounts per folder. Is there some way to make the full home directly mount as a drive so that it can be easily saved to? Almost an exact replicate of how the dock shortcut works but able to be quickly accessed through all applications?
I am by far not very clued up on Macs and despite a tenacious effort on googling this problem, I cannot find any answer. I have found a post that looked promising but quickly went into a 50+ page discussion on scripts which went straight over my head.
Can this be done?
