Login script for active directory (automount drive)


I am currently working on a project to connect OS x machines onto a windows 2003 domain.

So far all good but im trying to find a login script that can be added to the active directory and then to the users profile and ran on login .....

I have set automount on one OS x machine so far through login items locally but I would prefer to have it working through a login script ran from the AD.

I tested a .bat file we use for the windows machines to automount the drive but it wont work with the OS x machine due to incompatibility so what else can I use?

Thanks in advance.

I am not quite sure what exactly you are trying to do. Are you trying to create a log in hook for every user when they log in it maps the home directory on a Windows server?

I have a shared folder on the server which I want to map through a login script on the AD.

With the windows users we use a .bat to do this but wont work on the OS x machines ......

Basically the OS x users need one folder to share their data between each other and it needs to be automatic when they login ...

Sorry if im not explaining this correctly as I havent work with OS x machines to this degree.
