Security is not the issue. What I am trying to do is spilt the upstream from the external drive. That way it plugs into two machines. The main problem is when I need to run a diagnostic on or restart the main computer it cuts off the connection to the other machine. The external dirve is plugged in to the main computer.
Booting all Macs to the main one with some alias in the startup folder would instantly make the drive available.
There must be something I dont get in the question. The solution takes a minute and does not cost anything. Something I miss?
