Redirect iTunes Library to different folder through Group Policy

We have set Group Policy to redirect My Documents to our file server (2008).  This has been great, but we now face a major problem.  Many of our users have iTunes and therefore their music and movies end up on the server.  This is causing a space issue and we need to get those files off the server.  I know we can change the location through iTunes, but this will be terrible to do for a couple hundred users.  Is there a way we can use Group Policy to redirect the folder and then I can set the File Server Resource Management to block image/video files and others I do not want on the server.

I know how to setup the FSRM on the server to block that file from being stored on the server, but I need to move iTunes so they do not have issues when using their iPhones and other devices.

I would bet that your company policy does not support iTunes in the corporate environment.
