10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: ZZamboni on Jun 24, '08 01:57:02AM

Did you run the previous command, "cd /Volumes/YourBackupDisk/Backups.backupdb"? The machine name in the xattr command refers to a directory that exists under the Backups.backupdb directory in your backup disk, so if you are not in the correct directory in the shell, it will not find it.

As an alternative, you can do it all in a single command: xattr -p com.apple.backupd.BackupMachineAddress /Volumes/YourBackupDisk/Backups.backupdb/YourMachineName

Hey,

I'm also stuck at this place. Once I enter my computer's name at the end of the command, I receive a blank command line that when I enter additional commands in, nothing happens. Help please?
