mount one or more MDM Servers one at a time (even if you left them

mounted when you exited the previous MDM Console session).

of currently mounted MDM Servers to an MDM Console settings file,

which then can be used to remount the servers as a group during a

subsequent MDM Console session.

even after the MDM Server is stopped that it uses to automatically

remount them as a group each time the MDM Server is restarted.

from the file using the File > Open command from the main menu, or

you can load the list automatically by appending the full pathname of a
