    Hi guys,

    Sorry if this isn't the right area, I have tried searching but couldn't find anything.

    I have a bunch of macs connected to my windows domain. I have it up and running on active directory, everything is fine and dandy in terms of login/authentication (I think it was easier to connect the mac to the domain than a windows pc - but that's another matter...).

    I will have anything upwards of 200 users logging on to these machines. Is there a way I can automount an SMB (windows shared drive) automatically for anybody that logs in? I can get it working by mounting manually - but i'd like it to be automatic.

    I want it to work like this;

    User logs in - it authenticates to AD (currently working)
    MAC automounts a shared drive and is accessible on desktop automatically

    I would also like to add a link to a webpage on all desktops... I can't see how to do this either.

    Thanks a bunch and I look forward to your replies...

    Ben

    I've just had a look and when the user logs in, it is mounting to their personal data area (h: drive) automatically. It must be getting this from active directory. Clever
