enableFileSharing.sh -- Enables or Disables Personal File Sharing on Mac OS X

Synopsis

[script]sudo enableFileSharing.sh[/script]
[script]sudo enableFileSharing.sh <mountPoint> <computerName> <currentUsername> <enableFileSharing>[/script]

If there is a hardcoded value specified for <enableFileSharing> in the script, or if the parameter is not passed by The Casper Suite, the hardcoded value in the script will be used.

The data that is specified for the <enableFileSharing> parameter should be specified in one of
the following formats:

"t" "T" "true" "True" "TRUE"
"f" "F" "false" "False" "FALSE"
"y" "Y" "yes" "Yes "YES"
"n" "N" "no" "No" "NO"

Description

This script enables or disables the Personal File Sharing preference on Mac OS X 10.3 or later. If there is a hardcoded value specified in the script for <enableFileSharing> it will be used. The value can also be populated from the JSS by deploying the script as a policy payload. Since the Casper Suite defines the first three parameters of a bash script as (1) Mount Point, (2) Computer Name and (3) username, the script uses the fourth parameter ($4) as the passable parameter (variable) to acquire the status of <enableFileSharing> and to set the enableFileSharing status.
