Hi,
Is it possible on a Mac to mount a share folder as the server name instead of volumes?

for example: mount /servername not /Volumes/sharefolder

We have a snow leopard workstation and a windows 2003 server.

thanks.

Every sharepoint you mount will be in /Volumes/, which is a local directory on the client computer.

Could you please explain further what you are trying to do? I can't understand what the issue is.

We are just trying to run a standard script that we use on windows boxes. on the windows side everything mounts as the servername/sharefolder. here it mounts as volume/sharefolder, just trying to get it to mount with the servername instead of volumes or trick the system to thinking one is the other.

thanks.

What kind of "standard script" are you talking about, that you mean to run on windows as well as macs? Maybe you can be more concrete, as I do not understand what the problem is.
