Volume Manager is a Mac OSX application used to organize, automate and monitor the mounting of Windows (SMB) and Apple (AFP) volumes/shares/disks. Easy to use Mac app to admin the mounting of Windows (SMB) and Apple (AFP) shares. Laptops can use Volume Manager to manually or automatically mount volumes at work and at home. Optional scheduling of mounting also monitor mount and remount of shares. Volume Manager 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 Volume Manager can make your life easier. Volume Manager 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.
Volume Manager can keep an eye on a mount and if a server goes down (and the mount disappears) Volume Manager 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.
Optional scheduling of mounting also monitor mount and remount of shares.
Volume Manager can mount Windows shares when the username is local to the server doing the sharing but Volume Manager 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.
