    I have all my music, movies, etc on a Drobo attached to a server on my home network.
    I have a Macbook Pro which I can sync fine with the library, but everytime I disconnect from the network it defaults back to a local library. If I go to permissions and change it back then iTunes will find the library again.

    Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to keep iTunes from loosing the location all the time?

    replace the iTunes Music folder in "music/iTunes" (so basically the default folder) with an alias titled "iTunes Music" that points to where the music actually is.

    took me forever to find this on a board somewhere.
