How to Mount Windows network Shares in Mac OS X Lion

Given a mounted network share \ server \ Home \ username, SL used to mount the folder \ volumes \ username. However, Lion reason whatsoever mounts \ volumes \ Startup, and expects to be username. However, this poses a trouble because users can not browse / folder permissions list in the startup folder, so your home folder is basically inaccessible. I could theoretically add permissions to the folder list, but this raises some troubles:
  • The user will have to navigate through hundreds of folders of other users to find their own
  • We have scripts that work outside the assumption that a user's home folder is mounted as \ volumes \ username and \ volumes \ Startup \ username

Is there a way to mount Lion folder correctly? I know that Apple stopped Samba license for Lion and instead built their own pile of SMB, so I hope this is not impossible.

You might want to scroll down). It was a bit premature to say that there is a "right answer". It should have been marked as "useful" because it is a known bug in Lion.

Re: How to Mount Windows network Shares in Mac OS X Lion

Folder1/Folder2 to unite to the SMB server myserver.mydomain.com, the volume that is mounted on the desktop will be dissimilar than in preceding versions of Mac OS X.In OS X Lion, the Finder will mount the call volume on the SMB server SharePoint myserver.mydomain.com, and unlock a window that exhibit the inside of the directory with the name Folder2. Note: You must have permission to read SharePoint, Folder1, and all other directories in the path of Folder2. or else, the memo "The folder cannot be opened for the reason that it does not have permission to view its contents."

In Mac OS X v10.6 and earlier, the Finder will mount the folder named Folder2 and open a window displaying its contents. You only need read permissions to Folder2 ride.

In fact, some people say it's a feature -Who knows. You could give users only the rights of reading in the intermediate folders. This might work if it is okay in terms of safety and what might collide.

Re: How to Mount Windows network Shares in Mac OS X Lion

References can use a mixture DFS namespace NetBIOS or DNS. For example, when a user connects to smb: / / root.dfs.namespace / a share / could be referring to smb: / / taxpayer / share. In order to resolve the DFS referral, verify that the WINS server is configured correctly in Network preferences in System Preferences, or verify that the DNS suffix is correct. If OS X Lion's reference does not resolve via WINS DFS, the connection will fall back to add the DNS search path.

Re: How to Mount Windows network Shares in Mac OS X Lion

If Kerberos authentication is not used when connected, it may be necessary to add the NetBIOS domain name when connecting through DFS. For instance, the authentication window for the user name field type "DOMAIN \ USERNAME". The subsequent instance provides a technique to unite to access a DFS namespace with a URL:
Code:
smb: / / Domain USERNAME root.dfs.name space / dfsroot / DfsLink

Re: How to Mount Windows network Shares in Mac OS X Lion

It seems the "default view" in the Finder when you mount a network drive is "columns". If you change the view to something else (icon / list / Cover Flow) that shows everything on the network share you are trying to reach excellence.

Type in this terminal
Code:
Mounting via cmd line worked perfectly well:
