10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: nukular on Dec 05, '08 10:41:26PM

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.
