persistent afp server connection

Steve Upton

I have an OS X server (10.9 server) that is supposed to be perpetually connected to another server by mounting the server on its desktop.

Every 2 weeks or so there’s an Internet hiccup and the Mac drops the connection.

All I can find online is information about how to get the volume to connect at reboot, but obviously that’s not the issue.

Anyone figure out how to get the Mac to maintain a persistent network volume mount (and keep trying if it disappears)?

Steve

Can you use rsync instead?

perhaps, but I’m working on supporting some other code that expects the volume to be there…

That and configuring rsync requires a level of familiarity that I don’t have at the moment.

Still… it’s worth considering….

Couple ideas;
There's a way to mount volume from command line. You could just run that every so often:

Also: there's a Drive Mounter App in the App Store. Not sure if it will watch or not.

I believe previous versions of Mac OS X had the *nix standard
/etc/network/ifup.d/ and ifdown.d directories where you could place scripts
that execute whenever your network connection goes up or down. Doesn't look
like it's there any more. Not sure if they were replaced with something
else or just removed.

I think you can still add an entry to /etc/fstab for the volume and issue
"mount -a" to make sure it's mounted. If you can't trigger it on an event,
you may just have to run it routinely via cron.
