sudo <mountPoint> <computerName> <currentUsername> <timeout>

If the $timeout parameter is specified (parameter 4), this is the timeout value that will be
set. The timeout value should be specified as an integer in seconds.

If no parameter is specified for parameter 4, the hardcoded value in the script will be used.


This script will modify the length of time that Directory Services will wait before an attempted connection times out. Modifying this value can be particularly useful in an environment with mobile users that are bound to an LDAP server that is not accessible from the outside world. The <timeout> value can be used with a hardcoded value in the script, or read in as a parameter. Since the Casper Suite defines the first three parameters as (1) Mount Point, (2) Computer Name and (3) username, we are using the fourth parameter ($4) as the passable parameter.
