Hi,

i created an automount to make sure my backup SBM Volume is mounted all the time,
the mounting works fine, problem is that my App and the Finder cant access this Volume. When I go there in the bash i can list the content:



/Users/Shared/RETROSPEKT -fstype=smbfs ://backup:xxx@192.168.1.221/backup


Also the device is listed twice when i list my mount:


map auto_backup on /Users/Shared/RETROSPEKT (autofs, automounted, nobrowse)
//backup@192.168.1.221/backup on /Users/Shared/RETROSPEKT (smbfs, nodev, nosuid, automounted, nobrowse)


How can I get normal access to this mount?

    Also interested into this matter.

    This is a seriously downsides to 10.6 server, along a growing list. Seems that everything you do with this OS is working around limitations or bugs

    so annoying

    Me too.

    I think the lesson here is just stick with Linux -- its actually much simpler.

    I have a similar problem (no permission for my user folder when I want to automount it as a whole, but subfolders work).

    I was already searching the web for hours..

    I have a similar problem. I have our users set up with network home directories which are shared via AFP. These are automounted on the client workstations. The problem is, the actual mount point gets incredibly restrictive permissions:

     

    drwx------+ 1 user1  staff  264 Jan 17 10:48 /Network/Servers/server.local/Users/

     

    So if user2 attempts to ssh into a machine where user1 is already logged in, user2 is unable to mount their home directory.

     

    Have been unable to find a solution. I'm running 10.7.5 on all machines.
