sudo <mountPoint> <computerName> <loginUsername> <shareUsername> <authType> <password> <mountType> <share>


This script was designed to mount a network share on an event such as user login, or through a self service policy. Using Casper's policy engine, a policy can be scoped so that users and groups (local or directory-based) will mount run this script, and therefore mount the assigned network share. For directory-based users, it is recommended to use the "kerberos" authentication type. For local users, the "password" authentication type must be used. For kerberos authentication to work properly, the user must be able to manually mount the share when logged in by navigating to "Go" > "Connect to Server..." in the Finder and the user must be able to mount the share without authenticating. To ensure that your directory users are obtaining kerberos tickets properly, navigate to "System" > "Library" > "CoreServices" and open the "Kerberos Ticket Viewer" application while a directory user is logged in.
