I know this is similar to other open questions about mounting network drives, but this one is slightly different.

I have an AppleScript that runs at startup that looks like this:

tell Application "Finder"
  mount volume "afp://
end tell

Where user_name is specific to the sub folder under file_server. On one of my Macs, this works and mounts the sub-folder at user-name. On a different mac, it only mounts the file_server folder. The one that doesn't mount the full path is OSX 10.9.5. The one that works properly is OSX 10.10.1. Makes me think it's an OSX version difference.

    Assuming that the mount paths are different (in user_name) on both machines, are there any special characters or spaces in the path that fails to work? – Asmus Feb 11 '15 at 23:20
  • No there are very simple path names. No spaces, no weird characters. – Zero21xxx Feb 12 '15 at 0:05
  • are there user access/permissions differences – Ruskes Feb 15 '15 at 5:32
  • No, I just verified the permissions. Also, I would think I would get a different error if it was a permissions problem. Currently, the script tries to mount /file_server/xxx and I don't get any warning and the /file_server fold does mount correctly with the correct permissions. Just not drilled down into /xxx – Zero21xxx Feb 16 '15 at 15:57
