Automount A SMB Drive In OSX

Posted By Weston Ganger

I wanted my SMB share to automount on my Macbook running OSX Yosemite.

It should have been easier than this to set this up but its a Mac.

First create a shares directory somewhere underneath your home folder. I had endless permissions troubles when placing it elsewhere.

mkdir ~/shares

Next edit /etc/auto_master

# Set scripts permissions
sudo chmod 600 /etc/auto_smb

# Reload auto_master config
sudo automount -vc
