Connecting MacBook Air to shared folder on Active Directory server

Environment:

Windows 2012 Server (only Windows server on the network, domain controller)
Mac Server 10.8 running on a Mac Mini
MacBook Air client running Mavericks OS X 10.9

*****************************************************

I'm creating configuration profiles using the Profile Manager on the Mac server. I created a simple single mapped drive (Network Mount) in the profile, installed that profile onto the MacBook Air, rebooted it, & it maps to the server showing me all the shares on the server instead of mounting the folder I told it to mount.

If I try manually mapping the same drive on the MacBook Air it maps just fine. There must be something going on with the syntax I'm using for the config profile. That dialog box where you enter the path to the network share you want to mount when creating the profile looks suspicious to me, like someone wanted to make it cool & sexy but didn't spend much time testing it in the real world. Who knows. Thanks for any help.

just to be clear, this is the syntax I'musing:

smb://<server name>/<share name>

Not sure if I did anything differently than before but it's working now, using the same syntax I specified above. Oh well, no expert help needed this time I guess..... but how about a drink? Can I get a drink here or something maybe? :)

Thanks.

To be clear, this is what I entered:

Protocol: SMB

URL: <server's IP address>

Share: <name of share>

I entered no slashes of any kind; "it" did that for me. This is being done in Profile Manager on the Mac Server.
