10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: Reborn2 on Apr 17, '10 07:47:42PM

Please Help.

System: 10.5.8
backup volume: MBP backup
machine name: X's Computer

I executed the following two commands in Terminal and I could not get my old MAC address.

cm218-253-226-173:MBP backup kwongchu$ cd /Volumes/MBP\ backup/Backups.backupdb
cm218-253-226-173:Backups.backupdb kwongchu$ xattr -p com.apple.backupd.BackupMachineAddress X\'s\ Computer
No such file: X's Computer

Did I type in the command wrong ?
Do I need to install the xattr ?
I forced the Finder to show hidden files and I don't see the file name "X's Computer" in the "MBP backup" root dir or the subdir "Backups.backupdb"

Thank you.
