MAC address or serial number for Time Machine
Authored by: palahala on Oct 31, '08 02:41:28PM
Apple should really use the system's serial number rather than the ethernet MAC address as a unique identifier.
Since my motherboard has been replaced (twice) the serial number shows as the word "SystemSerialNumb". According to the Apple store this is fine as long as the serial number is visible underneath the battery. So, this number could not be used for the backup I guess.
