I'm having trouble hosting an iTunes library on my MBWE2 (blue rings).
I've configured the box to export three NFS locations, which I've mounted on my MacBook in identical locations (i.e. /shares/internal/*DIR*):
- /shares/internal/MUSIC (noowners, nosuid, sync, browse, resvport, soft, nolocks)
- /shares/internal/LIBRARIES (noowners, nosuid, sync, browse, resvport, soft, nolocks)
- /shares/internal/MP3 (noowners, nosuid, sync, browse, resvport, soft, nolocks)
Using iTunes I've successfully created a new library in the LIBRARIES folder (at /shares/internal/LIBRARIES/iTunes) without any problems and with the "Copy music to my library" preference turned on, I can import MP3's into the Music folder (/shares/internal/LIBRARIES/iTunes/iTunes Media/Music) folder all day long.
However, what I'd like to do is see all the imported MP3s from the iTunes Music folder in the MUSIC share. So, I created a symbolic link in /shares/internal/LIBRARIES/iTunes/iTunes Media/ called Music that maps to /shares/internal/MUSIC. I imagined that when music was copied into the iTunes library, it would simply copy it into the MUSIC share (through the symbolic link) and hey presto, job done.
But, I get an error message when trying to add to the library that says "Attempting to copy to the disk "LIBRARIES" failed. The required folder cannot be found." This error only occurs when I put the symbolic in place. I did originally think it was how my client was interpreting the paths, but as they're identical on both client and server, I've ruled that out.
Can anyone help?
