Keychain with NT server?

I'm noticing when I connect to shared drives on an NT Server the Add to Keychain option is greyed out next to where you enter your name and password.

Do other people have this working? Does it work connecting to another Mac? Maybe it's just that the NT Services for Macintosh doesn't support this.

With AppleShare IP, there is an option in the server settings that allows the server administrator to specify whether or not users can save passwords. I'm not sure if the Apple file services for NT have this option, but you might want to contact the server administrator and ask.

Keychain is a great thing. NT Servers support saving password for login only if it is activated on the server. Generally it is not turned on in SFM(even though win clients remap network shares at login all the time). Works in W2K too.

An easy workaround is to open your keychain file through the CP or in /System Folder/Preferences/Keychains and then drag any mounted volume into the list. Enter your username and pwd and then put an alias of the volume in your startup items folder (look in the /users/yourname directory if Multiple Users is active.

Aliases to Appletalk/IP servers (ethershare in particular) using DHCP can cause great dalays at startup or after login.
