Make sure iTunes mounts a networked music library
Authored by: ahoogerwerf on Apr 24, '07 07:19:43AM
As you already could see in this hint(read the comments!), another solution would be to move the library itself to the networked drive as well. This way iTunes will first mount the volume, to be able to load its library. Works since iTunes 7.

Make sure iTunes mounts a networked music library

I think this is what I'm doing - let me just elaborate for those reading along. Move your ~/Music/iTunes to the network shared folder, cmd-option drag it back to ~/Music. Make sure to store the password in the keychain so OSX can mount it for you.

Yeah, that's all, this is the kind of stuff that's worked well since System 7 came out with the Alias manager. Mine happens to be on a netatalk volume on my linux storage server, so I can easily RAID and rsnapshot it and hit it from MythTV.

I think I tried this some time ago, and it didn't work reliably. Perhaps I should reinvestigate.
