  • This problem really annoys us all at work. I've completely failed to find a reference to it in the Apple knowledge base [apple.com] either. I'd love to find a solution ;-)

      Have you tried making an alias to the mounted drive? (command-L should do the trick). Or just drag it onto your finder toolbar. Upon reboot/whatever you should be able to simply double-click/click the alias and have it ask for authentication details. If that's too much of a pain you can use a .nsmbrc containing your connection details; the password need not appear as simple text but can be encrypted using

      smbutil crypt mypasswordhere

      and then inserted into the .nsmbrc in that form.
      The .nsmbrc file is detailed in the following article about samba/OSX

      http://www.opensource.apple.com/projects/documentation/howto/html/osxsmb.html

      [[Lastly, from the command line you should be able to alias

      mount -t smbfs //username:password@server/share /mount_point

      to do the trick.]]

      Cheers,
      Paul
