10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: DOUGZEUG on Dec 02, '09 08:26:53PM

I hope someone is still reading this...

I recently got a replacement (refurbished) PowerMac G5. I put my old HD in it. But, like replacing the logic board, my Time Machine backup won't continue where it left off.

I've followed the steps above and have gotten the old MAC address. I've verified that the address correct.

After that it all goes down hill.
When I enter the "sudo fsaclctl -p /Volumes/Time Machine -d" command I'm asked for a password. I enter my Mac's password (is that the right password?) and I get
"error (-1) from /Volumes/Time Machine -d. (Unknown error: -1). Support for access control lists is unknown."

Anyway, please be easy on me, I'm a moron with this sort of thing.
Any ideas of what to do next?

(Why can't there be a nice GUI for remedial computer users like me?)
