I am having issues automatically mounting a smb share on our osx 10.6 server so that _www has the permissions to read the presented files.
If I mount using the graphical auto-mount utility supplied in osx, the operating system does not allow access to the files as _www
I have been able to get around this by issuing:
sudo -u _www mount_smbfs //sambauser:password@<ip addr>/ShareName /tmp/my_mnt
But this obveously requires a superuser password to be entered, I could easily do this on a Linux box in fstab by putting
//host/share /path/to/mount/point smbfs username=remotename,password=remotepass,uid=_www 0 0 in
fstab but seeing as osx has all-but done away with fstab I am unable to do so.
Is there something obveous I'm missing here?
