Is it possible to do this?
I have an Active Directory domain, and the DC is a Windows 2003 box.
I want my mac users to be able to get their drives and printers mapped in through a script at logon.
Can AppleScript do this? I know Automator can, but an automator created application does not seem to work on pre-Tiger versions of OSX, hence this post.
Could you look at the code for the automator actions to see how they do it in Tiger?
I have found a way to map drives. Ridiculously easy. I am sure there are better ways of doing them… But welll… All I did was this:
mount volume “smb://DOMAIN;path/”
Which does the job. A tell application “finder” and then following with the “mount” command worked fine too, but try is better as it does not give you an error message if it fails.
I still don´t know how to map printers though…
And I am rather stuck on how to make the script be run on login for the domain users. It seems wether I refer to it in the Group Policy, or directly on the user the mac does not launch the script. Which is annoying
Does anyone have any ideas on how to make the script run on logon for the mac users - even if it is the first time they log on?
