Wifi Certs and Network Shares

New Contributor III

Hey all,

Question, we use user based certificates for the wifi network so when logging in the network volume tries to join before the wifi cert authenticates. That causes the "?" mark as well as the network volume errors. I've tried writing a few things to delay the login but they start only at login not startup. I'm thinking a launch daemon would help but was looking to get some help or opinions from the community.

I'd probably go for a launchagent to trigger a script with a delay.

The script could just call a policy to mount the share. You could also add in some logic into the script to check for network connectivity (perhaps by pinging the file server) and if its down, retry in 30 seconds.
