Mount network drive on users desktop based on user name
Posted on 2011-09-20
I need to give users access to their network folder on their desktops. Currently the users share folder is mounted to their dock when they log in, although I am not sure how it got there. I did not setup this network and according to WGM this dock item is not being controlled by it. The users authenticate to an AD server, which has executes a bat file for the users who log into the windows machines to mount there users network folder. This should not effect the apple computers tho.
So basically what I need is that dock item to end up on the desktop. Unfortunately programs, such as photoshop, will not allow you to save directly to that mounted drive since it is in the dock. It requires you to click the server name then the navigate through all the sub folders (around all the other users folder) to find your own folder.
So basically I need a folder that belongs to USER1 mounted on the desktop of USER1 when logged in and a folder for USER2 to be mounted on the desktop of USER2 when logged in etc....
o and the server is 10.5.8 the clients in question are 10.6.8
