I've added automount entries to my wife's Macbook (OSX - unsure about the exact version as she's overseas) for some shares on our FreeNAS server at home.
Sometimes when she travels for work it can't find the shares so Finder gets stuck with the spinning beach ball and is unusable. This doesn't always happen but when it does, it is persistent. For her current issue I have commented out the automount entries with chrome remote desktop however this is not always an option due to intermittent internet.
Is there some way to change these settings so that this problem does not reoccur? It does not happen every time.
The entries are fairly basic, as below.
/- auto_smb -nosuid
/Volumes/share1 -fstype=smbfs,sort ://user:email@example.com/share1 /Volumes/share2 -fstype=smbfs,sort ://user:firstname.lastname@example.org/share2
