Mount a second share during authentication

Hi dudes actually my clients are authenticating via AD, mounting the resource and accessing their home where they can do all their stuff. They see only their home but i need them to have access to another shared folder where they can pick up and drop files and share those in between them. Is it possible to tell the Isilon to do that? I would like to tell the isilon to mount those folders instead an automount from the machine. All my environment is a mac based SMB, no windows computers.

Re: Mount a second share during authentication

mounting is always done by the client; there is no way for a server to 'push' a mount to a client.

Helpful Isilon docs for Mac clients:

Re: Mount a second share during authentication

Thanks for your answer, but when the clients authenticate using AD somehow the volume is mounted, who pushes that mount, the AD or the isilon? I expected to be possible to push another mount taking into account the first thing happens.

I want the users to mount the shared volume /ifs/data when they authenticate. In that folder are all the users home folder and some other folders for which all users have access.
