OSX 107 Lion Automount of HDA shares

Postby pjcrux » Tue Apr 17, 2012 12:23 pm

I can connect to my HDA from finder via the following link: http://wiki.amahi.org/index.php/SharingToMacOSX

That is not the problem. :)

What I would like to have done is the my iMac automount my HDA shares at login/boot up. What's the best way?

I purchased the automount app from the app store and it doesn't recognize the HDA shares. :x

Thoughts? :ugeek:

I used this method - using automator in Lion
Open the Finder and click on the Network icon.
Click on workgroup name (maison in my example).
Click on server name (nas in my example).
Click on the Connect button.
Take note of share names and network server name on a piece of paper.
Open Automator.
Click on Finder under Library section.
Click and drag Get Specified Servers into rightmost screen section.
Click on the + sign in the Get Specified Servers window.
Type smb://server name/share name in the Address: field, and click Connect (smb://nas/mp3 in my example).
Repeat the previous step for the remaining shares you wish to automount.
Click and drag Connect to Servers under the Get Specified Servers section.
Click the Run button to test your workflow.
Save your workflow as a Workflow and Application.
Add your new Application to your System Accounts Login Items.
