hey ppl, for the student's iMacs I wrote a script to map an external harddrive that's attached to a teacher's iMac for storeage. I attached the script to the local admin's 'Login Options' and it works fine but all the other users don't have the 'Login Option' tab even though they are admins to the computer :confused:
How then can I attach a login script to a user other than the local admin?
The users should have a login items pane....
You could make a simple AppleScript app which tells the Finder to mount the drive. You can then launch the app and while it's in the dock, get the user to right click it and choose "Open At Login". Or if you have OS X Server running on your network, you can use Workgroup Manager (similar to Windows GP) to set a login item for that batch of Macs, or that group of users. Hope that helps.
my problem is the users are not local admins. they are 'managed' users and the script try's to run but does not complete. I've checked permissions on the .app and the share and all looks good...I guess. If I logon as the local admin the script runs fine but not as the user :confused: I also chod -777 the .app file just fyi.
thanks for the help, I appreciate it.
