Connecting a Macintosh to an SBS 2003 Server via SMB (2007)

This document provides instructions for connecting a Macintosh running Mac OS X 10.4 to an SBS 2003 server. This document was prepared using Mac OS X 10.4.10, but should apply to any later updates to 10.4. The server used to develop these screen shots has an internal domain with a .lan suffix. These steps should work with any internal domain suffix, including .local.

Automounting SMB Shares on a Macintosh

Anyone who has used a Macintosh in a network environment for several years will remember a feature from OS 9 and earlier versions that allowed you to save logon credentials for a network volume. This would allow users to have those network volumes automatically mount on the Mac desktop when the user logged in on the Mac. As with many other features of the new operating system, this functionality changed with the release of OS X. As a result, there is no longer a simple checkbox that a user can enable to have a network volume automatically mount when the user logs in.
