Mapping a webfolder to linux on boot
As I am the "linux expert" of the office - a position I fear I hold simply because I don't regard the OS with fear or loathing, rather than because of actual skill - I have been asked to write a shell script to do the equivalent of mapping an online folder to a drive in windoze. The online folder is basically the personal documents folder on our SharePoint VLE. Its mapped on our windows machines as below:
In XP: Tools => Map Network Drive then type in http://webfolders.xxxxxx.sch.uk/Personal/%username%
Then obviously you whack in the domain login details and it works a treat, and we have a script to run on login to map it automatically.
I've touched on Samba before but I'm by no means proficient. All the guides and examples I can find relate to mapping //servername/path rather than webfolders and just chucking in the url doesn't seem to work the same way. Any thoughts on how to go about this?
Cheers in advance!!
