TL;DR / Solution:

You signed out in another tab or window. Mounting the share is a 2 stage process:. Create a directory that will be the mount point. Mount the share to that directory.

Using the Mac OS X automounter

All remote filesystems will appear under this directory which acts as a trigger to the automount service. You will need to use sudo to create the directory:. Also we will assume the filesystem is formatted as a Microsoft Windows SMB filesystem as it is also accessed by Windows devices true in my case. Any time you modify the map files you need to inform the automount service in order for them to become active:.

The only option that you are likely to ever want to change is the timeout period. This is time that the automount service will wait before unmounting a filesystem that has not been accessed.

Some Stuff to Click

It should be noted that filesystems that are automounted in this way will not show up automatically in the sidebar of the OS X Finder application. Nor will they automatically appear as disk icons on the desktop.
