Currently Being ModeratedNov 7, 2005 2:36 AM (in response to Oliver Kess)10.4.2 needs read access for everyone for shares to make them visible.
No, you don't have to enable read access for the POSIX everyone field. However, if you're mounting the share points to static mount points, you do need at least read access for the POSIX everyone field. Static automounts that appear in the Network globe (/private/var/automount/Network) are mounted by guest or securityagent.

you are by far the most experienced expert I've met in this forum. Thank you very much for your good input!
Is this behavior something that is new to 10.4.2? I have not experienced this in 10.3.9 server and again I have to say that this only appears to be a problem for clients that are created under the 10.4.2 version of the server.
Currently Being ModeratedNov 7, 2005 2:47 PM (in response to Oliver Kess)Thank you for the compliment! I'm glad that my post has helped you.
With static automounts, the only thing that's new to the 10.4 family, as far as I can tell, is that some of them are mounted by the securityagent user instead of guest. In my experience, this was only pertinent to a shared Library (/Network/Library).
Otherwise, with 10.3 and 10.4 server, any automounts need to have at least guest access to read.
