Mapping drives on a Mac client mapping to Windows server 2012 in the Magic Triangle

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!
