Not sure if you've resolved this or not, but stumbling around trying to
resolve a diff macOSX issue with Samba that I'm having I found this:
mount-smbfs is the Mac OSX equiv of smbmount on Linux.
maybe someway of throwing that into their login script on the MacOS side
of things? to mount-smbfs \\Xserve\homedirs\username
or some such contraption? ;)
Incredibly MacOS Ignorant
