How To Map Shared Drive In Mac

Map a network drive to Mac OS X that re-mounts after system reboot. This method allows you to reboot your Mac and have the mapped network drive / network share automatically connect and remount, appearing on the desktop of OS X or in the Finder sidebar. In the Password box, type your password for the domain. The icon for the server will appear on your desktop. Double-click to open it. If you added this server to your Favorite Servers list in step 3, when you want to connect to the server again, the mapped drive should be available. In the Finder, on the Go menu, click Connect to Server.

  1. In Finder, click on Go and then on Connect to Server.
  2. In the Server Address box, type smb://filer1.egr.msu.edu/username where 'username' is your engineering username.
  3. You will then be asked to authenticate to the network. Under the Name field enter EGRyourusername, similar to egrSparty. Enter your engineering password in the password field.
