MONITOR MOUNTS

MountWatcher can keep an eye on a mount and if a server goes down (and the mount disappears) MountWatcher will remount the share when the server comes back online. However, for this to happen, you need to check the "Monitor this mount and keep it mounted" switch.

WINDOWS DOMAINS

MountWatcher can mount Windows shares when the username is local to the server doing the sharing but MountWatcher does not support DOMAIN Server authentication at this time. We are currently working on Active Directory and Domain Server authentication. Again, this doesn't affect regular non-DOMAIN Windows mounts.

Simply Useful

MountWatcher is a Mac OSX application used to organize, automate and monitor the mounting of Windows (SMB) and Apple (AFP) volumes/shares/disks. Laptops can use MountWatcher to automatically mount volumes at work and at home. MountWatcher can also be used to wake computers that are sleeping on an ethernet LAN.

If you need to mount disks from elsewhere on your network then MountWatcher can make your life easier. MountWatcher does just what its says, it holds a list of volumes (hard drives on other computers) with the necessary username and password and will automatically mount them whenever you want. Better still it watches and makes sure that they stay mounted if the network status changes.

Mac OS X Technologies

MountWatcher uses Bonjour to make mounting a local volume easy. 

MountWatcher can be setup to use one global user and password for all volumes.

MountWatcher can wake up computers on a LAN.
