    So I moved my iTunes library over to an NAS/RAID drive so I could access it on my network at home (it was also too big for my mac mini)

    Problem is every time my mac mini restarts I need to redirect iTunes to the location of the library.

    Any suggestions for a fix around this ?

    Make sure your share is active. I have connect to my share with my userid/password whenever the NAS or my Mac restarts. Once I'm able to navigate to the itunes share in Finder, I fire up iTunes

    You might try automounting the NAS share on boot so that it's always available for iTunes. You can do this with an automator application that's placed into your Login Items pane in System Preferences. Here is the code you'll need:

    tell application "Finder"
    mount volume "afp://server.address/mountpoint" as user name "username" with password "password"

    end tell
