I'm using Profile Manager on the Mac Server to create Configuration Profiles to apply to the MacBook Air laptops.

I'm working in Profile Manager -> Login Items -> Network Mounts

What is the correct syntax to map a drive here? Nothing I'm trying is working.

I've tried:

\\server name\share name
\\server name\path folder\sharename
\\192.168.x.x\sharename
192.168.x.x/sharename

Thanks.

try using either
//server name/share name

Open in new window

or
smb://server name//share name

Open in new window

smb://servername/sharename
Only one forward slash between server and share.

I map drives on these Mac's all the time & this is the same syntax I use all the time. This worked perfectly now. I must be seriously low on coffee or something. Thanks gang!
