I share several of the iTunes Media folders for use between more than one Mac, by automounting just the appropriate individual folders. However I came across a problem some time ago and never found a solution but which I now need to do so in order to proceed with my master plan. Automounter cannot deal with spaces in the path names. As far as I know it's the daemon automountd that reads the config files in /etc (auto.master, fstab etc) and it is unable to correctly deal with spaces anywhere in the path. Aha I hear you say, just escape the space with a \ or use quotes. If only it were that simple. Yes, it is SUPPOSED to understand \ as the escape character, even the man page states that, but it does not and treats both \ and " merely as a regular characters. So although the original export from the server quite happily and correctly exports paths with spaces (by escaping them with a \ surprise surprise), you cannot then use any such export, nor can you mount any other otherwise usable (i.e. no spaces) export onto a path with a space. So double blocked when you want to export iTunes' Home Videos and/or TV Shows folders and both ends are being used by iTunes. Needless to say, if anyone knows how to fix this, then please say as I'm all ears, but I doubt it is possible without re-writing automountd. Which brings me to the question of how to avoid the problem. Is it in any way possible to tell iTunes to use different folder names for its media storage, so e.g. to use Home_Videos and TV_Shows instead. Again, I very much doubt it, but if anyone can figure a way to do that, then please let me know. Alternatively, would iTunes accept the names it wants to use actually being symlinks to other named real folders (obviously without spaces in)? I know, I can try this and I will, but it always helps to know of other's experience.
