Hi. How can I automount several SMB shares on startup ?
I have heard that you can use a unix script and Lingon, but I don't know how.
Anyone knows ?

Here's how I do it:
1) Make sure you have your login information stored in your keychain or can login as guest
2) Mount all of the drives you need
3) Open Preferences, go to Accounts
4) Select Login Items
5) If the mounted drives are on your desktop, drag them into the list of things to launch at login, if not, press the + sign and select the appropriate drive from the popup on the left where it lists your available devices
6) I'd check hide so it doesn't open a finder window for each mounted volume, but that's me
This is how I've done it, and it works fairly well. I've heard some people have trouble with this method, but can't hurt to give it a try. If you look at my attached image, you'll see what my login items looks like, and you can see the drobo being auto mapped (I have it connected to a droboshare, so it's not a local usb or firewire drive)My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m, 16Gig ram; 2013 Mac Pro 6 core w/ D700, 16Gig Ram; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Linux; Apple TV (1080p version)
