Does anyone know how to setup a shared library to share fonts etc on a 10.8 server and then set clients to automount it?


I know this has come up before but wanted to see if anyone made headway on it.


In the past we were able to set up the shared network library on the server and clients easily with just a couple of selections in the admin GUI but that ability appears to be gone. I am not looking for a workaround since I have already put all items which I used to have in the shared library onto each of our clients manually as a workaround.

    In Workgroup Manager, select the computer that you want to have the automount happen on, assuming it's bounds to the server.


    Mount the share in question on the computer that has workgroup manager.  (unfortunately you can't have WGM do this step on the same computer that is sharing the ... ...share...)


    Open Workgroup Manager.

    Select the Preferences button.

    Click the "Login" button.

    Click the Items button.

    Select Always.

    Click the + button.

    Select the share you want to automount.

    Click Okay

    Select the share in the list.

    Put a check mark in the box that says, "Authenticate selected share point with user's login name and password."

    Click Apply Now.


    Hope that helps!
