comment Does anyone have any tips or best practices for using NFS mounted directories?
I found another useful tip today. There is a flag in /etc/auto_master called "hidefromfinder". If you turn this off for /net and /home, it improves the interoperability between finder and the automounter.

comment Sharing music in the iTunes library with multiple accounts and iOS devices
@Dori - Did you mean summarize my "answer" starting with "When", or summarize my comment to myself starting with "This is"? I would have made the second item be a comment on the original question, but I don't have the reputation to do that.

comment Sharing music in the iTunes library with multiple accounts and iOS devices
This is a good question. It has several aspects to it, but those aspects are not obvious to people who might have this question. It makes sense to address several angles on this question in one answer. I wouldn't recommend splitting it up, or simply pointing to multiple other answers without summarizing an answer to the different aspects (file-sharing, DRM, sync-database-updating)

It also turns out that Mac OS will prompt you with a little popup when a mounted volume is no longer available. There is a button that says "unmount all", but that doesn't seem to unmount all my /net mounts. So if I mount 6 things under /net at work, then when I resume my system at home I get prompted 6 times with a few minutes in between. It's very frustrating. It would be ideal if they all showed up in finder, so I could just pull up finder and click to eject all of them at once.

I had a problem with the second suggestion. If I use "connect to server", then the directories get mounted under /Volumes. So it seems like you have to decide whether you want to use the /net paths or the /Volumes paths to access your NFS directories and then use them consistently. Otherwise it gets confusing.

If I use the first key combo to open /net, then I can load them into finder. That's a good tip. Then I can drag them into "places" for shortcuts. Cool.

I'm happy to have anyone rewrite the post to be more structured according to overview. I reconsidered, but I couldn't figure out how to undo it.
