Mount SAN read only on Mac

Brandon Hart -

You need to modify the automount.plist file.

in 10.7 and 10.8, it's located in  /Library/Preferences/Xsan/

in 10.6 its in  /Library/Filesystems/Xsan/config

For 10.7 and 10.8 first you need to mount the FS first (if using the GUI preferences / Xsan panel) so it creates the .plist file, then go in and edit it.

Basically change this:

<key>AutoMount</key>
<string>rw</string>

to this:

<key>AutoMount</key>
<string>ro</string>

within that file.
