Well, I experience the following problems, which I've seen many people
gripe about on Apple's discussion board.
In the first place some shares are on Windows servers and some are on
Linux servers w/Samba.
Also, note that I am using Automounting, but mounting the shares by
going through Finder > Networks > [Domain Name] > [Server Name] >
at which point if it is the first time after a boot or something, I
have to push the Connect button. Once on connectivity is pretty good,
but sometimes it is lost, in which case a folder for the share remains
which is inaccessible. The only cure seems to be a reboot, which
really sucks. Perhaps you know of a way to avoid that? HUPping
Also, have you had any success using SWAT? I've tried setting shares
up using SWAT and that really seems to mess things up. Perhaps Apple
doesn't really want you to use SWAT, but their own built in utilities.
