I have my home Macbook pro's itunes library on a server. The library is on the server and the MBP just references that for its itunes. Everything works fine with it. I have a spare 250GB portable HD that I wanted to clone the itunes library to and bring it to work. On my work computer I will just set up itunes to reference the portable HD. Will this work or will it cause any problems between the two computers. I know they wont sync automatically or anything like that. Im not worried about that. I can just update my work one every so often. Has anyone else done this?

It will work fine. I have a laptop at work and a 500GB portable external drive. I do everything on an external drive at home and mirror the portable to match it. If I do anything at work, then I mirror the portable to the external at home. So I have two copies and can do work on both of them and update each drive. It works great.
