Fixing Time Machine?

Post by jelwell » Sat Dec 24, 2011 5:52 pm

I seemed to have broken time machine support of my nas. I had done some custom hacks to it a year or more back(?). Now I'm trying to give the drive to my mother to use as a networked time machine backup.

Unfortunately whatever I did broke Time Machine (I wasn't using it myself).

I could use some files to help point me in the right direction.

I can't remember which file I mucked with. I did upgrade to 2.064 from 2.063. I also reset everything. Before I reset everything there was a time-machine disk showing up on the iomega nas, but when I tried to select it it wanted a username & password that I couldn't remember. The name of the time machine made me think I had customized it at some point. After resetting no time machine supported drive is available.

In /nethdd/ I have 2 folders, one of which used to have time machine backups for my old computers. Unfortunately I rm -rf'ed those sparsebundles, probably not the right way to clear them:
/nethdd/backup/
/nethdd/backups/

The backup folder is empty. The backups folder has three items:
:2eDS_Store Network Trash Folder Temporary Items

If you know of other files that are related to Time Machine please let me know.

I did download sda1-2064.tgz, hoping I could look at the default file configurations. But I get errors trying to unpack the file.
Thanks,
Joseph Elwell.
