Mount the share on the computer with WGM. Open WGM, choose the group you would like to have mount the share. Click on the Preferences icon at the top of the window. Choose the Login icon on the right and click the Items tab. Drag the mounted share from your desktop to the Items window. Put a check next to Mount share point with user's name and password. This will mount the share automatically for the user at login. If your usernames are not Active Directory, users will have to enter a username and password with privileges to the share when they login to their computers. If the users login to their macs with AD credentials, the whole process will be automatic.
