10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: mmcd on Nov 23, '08 10:45:44AM

I tried this, following all the steps but it doesn't work. I've noticed that after the 'sudo mv .00f9e8d7c6b56 .001a2b3c4f56' step (using my own numbers) the files haven't changed. There is no new file name. What would cause this?

10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes

I'm with you on this. I have tried this EXACTLY, and it doesn't work. It always starts a NEW backup folder "macelvis 2" in the backups.backupdb folder.

Any hints here people? Seems a really really crap-ass backup program if a logic board screws it up so damn badly.

10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: nukular on Dec 07, '08 09:01:20AM

I discovered my problem...which could affect others as well. When I was doing this...I was using the mac address given to me by the system profiler...but this was for MY WIRELESS/AIRPORT CARD..not the hard-wired ethernet connection....which I presume is the address of the new logic board. So I used the ethernet card mac address as given to me by selecting it in the network system preferences.
