automounting a sharepoint in the dock

Having trouble automounting a sharepoint. In server admin I select the share point and have enabled automount for AFP and given myself full permissions.
I have logged onto mac client and launched WGM. I go to connect to server and mount the share in question. I’m not asked for a password and the share mounts. I  select my ” group” from Ldapv3 directory, go to preferences>dock and drag the mounted sharepoint into docs and folders. I check merge with users dock and save.
I then log out and log back in again and I can see a question mark in the dock. If I click it the question mark it then mounts my share and an icon of a folder appears. So it half works.
Is there a way for this to automatically mount so you don’t see the question mark?
I am using OSX server 10.6.6 and client is currently 10.6.3 – bound to OD and AD

Try putting the share mount in the login items for the user.

You can also write an AppleScript to mount shares and put that in the login items as well. I'm attaching one that I use.
tell application "Finder"
	delay 0.3
	try
		mount volume "smb://Servername1/applications"
		mount volume "smb://servername2/lis"
		mount volume "smb://servername3/public"
		
	end try
	
	delay 0.3
	
end tell

Open in new window

One other thing..........

When I click on the folder (sharepoint) in the dock it opens the fan style and a finder link. Is it possible to click it once and the shared folder would open.

Not sure, If you right-click on the icon in the dock, it shows you the options for display.  Not sure if there's some other config spot or not.

I did try that and couldn't see an option. But I would need to do it via WGM anyway. The network folder sharepoint is fine, one click and your there.

Once the share is mounted, it should also show in Finder in the left column.
