I am trying to connect users to the windows shared. Windows 2003 domain. Is there a way they can have mapped drives like they have in windows?
Also how can I get to the hidden shares
My domain is -> domain
I have a share I can get to via windows by tying
\\domain\domainroot\user and I will see all the names of the domain users
I cannot get this using the MAC
I was able to join the domain successfully and I can see all the servers and shares except the one describe above
bsh shell scripting is not terribly difficult if you have a Unix background.
Alretnatively, in the connect to server window, you can also save the network paths for mounts for fast access.
One last method is that after manually mounting the share, drag the mounted drive to the dock, just to the left of the trash. It will stay there for future use.
Beyond the above methods, if you have quite a large number of Mac users, consider investing in Centrify or Thursbysoft's DAVE.
