Hi,

I have backup utility that needs to be run on schedule on client computers. It's called Backuplist+ We make backups to network share. However when network share is not mounted backup is missed. In this utility there is the option to run shell command before backup. So I need to run shell command to mount this smb network share. It would be very good if this shell command will take password from keychain.

Create your Applescript.
Compile it into a .app file

run this commend from terminal osascript "script.app"

I didn't realized that I need not apple script, but automator application, which is not the same thing. I need to run automator application from command line.
