    So I'm a long time Mac user but our company environment is mainly pc's. We have active directory and have dfs set up for our file storage.

    Pc users are used to having their network drives mapped and being easily accessed.

    What I want to know is how anyone does something similar with the macs.

    I currently have an apple script that runs on each machine and mounts the drives. It then creates a sim link on the desktop. However the script has to be customised for each user and if they want access to another share I have to change the script.

    It feels like there must be a better way. I have been reading about setting up OS X server in a magic triangle but from what I can see it will not solve this issue.

    Anyone have any advise? Commercial or free I will take a look.

    This seems to work for me. It's got some cern specific stuff in it, but it is a start.
