I have two macs, that need to mount each other's respective network shares but also both need to restart every night.
The trouble is, neither computer can mount the other until the other is fully booted up with the volume ready.
How can I solve this without needing to use a paid 3rd party application?
I did find this question which is asking about a very similar need, but the top answer doesn't work because the user will always first be prompted to select the share they want to mount and this needs to happen unattended in the middle of the night.
If I can schedule the mountings, then each computer can just unmount the volume in question and restart (easy to do in Automator), and then some time later after both machines will easily be ready, re-mount their needed shares.
So, how can I simply schedule each machine to mount the required remote share, at a specified time?
