Only worked for me after a small modification

That is a bit strange, since your command only displays the IDs, but it does not change them.

Maybe you just hadn't switched Time Machine off before making the change, so it might have cached the old ID and just took a while until re-reading it eventually.

But anyway, good to hear the hint has been of use to you. :-)

Whoops! Sorry - I pasted in what I used to display the UUIDs before and after. The step I replaced looked like this of course:

for d in ../*; do xattr -w com.apple.backupd.SnapshotVolumeUUID XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX d$/my_partition; done

And yes, thank you very much for posting this tip - quite serendipitous as I just upgraded my iMac drive from 500gb to 1.5tb. So now I'm using three non-Apple-officially-supported methods that work great together - your seamless drive upgrade tip, the one to stick my time machine backup on an "unsupported" network share (Unraid server), and one to manually limit the size of that TM bundle... Pretty soon I'll think of hdiutil as a good old friend, and won't think of these as unsupported workarounds :) ... MacOS is my third OS to learn after DOSWindows and linux, and I'm liking it!

Ah, that's more like it. ;-)
I still can't say why you needed to do that.

Undocumented procedures can be fun... as long as one never forgets that greater power comes with greater responsibility...! 8-)
