10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: squarefrog on Feb 01, '08 09:29:29AM

Damn I wish I'd known this before deleting my TM drive. Still I had to change my computer name anyway so I wouldn't have been able to use it. It's a great hint though, thanks!

10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: Bruce Rutland on Jul 18, '09 04:25:53AM

* IMPORTANT On my system at least *

When viewing this hint in Safari (4.0.2) the 'box' containing the instructions only shows 3 lines, the 3rd command 'sudo xattr -w.....' is missing - Firefox 3.5.1 displayed the page correctly!

Below is the complete set of instructions:

$ sudo fsaclctl -p /Volumes/Time Machine -d
$ sudo mv .00f9e8d7c6b5 .001a2b3c4f56
$ sudo xattr -w com.apple.backupd.BackupMachineAddress 00:1a:2b:3c:4f:56 Backups.backupdb/MyMac
$ sudo fsaclctl -p /Volumes/Time Machine -e

It works much better with the 3rd instruction - it certainly worked for me...
