In Topic: [Guide] 10.6 (Snow Leopard) Time Machine backup to network share

18 November 2010 - 06:40 PM

This looks very promising, but I've got a little hurdle to work around. I've got the sparsebundle in a directory I have write access to on our Win2003 NAS at work, but I don't have write access to the root of the NAS. I thought I might be able to trick Time Machine into thinking it was a different drive by symlinking to it in /Volumes, but no such luck. Can anyone suggest a way I can point TM at the specific dir on the mounted NAS? Thanks.

You could try to mount the specific directory on your client instead of mounting the root directory of the NAS. If you need both, you may have to work with your IT department to enable this on their end.

My own setup is much like this and supports several users. The storage space is a large RAID array on a server. I export individual directories from it via the Linux version of Apple Talk (atalk). This way, individual users see different shares when they connect to the server.

Here is a generic view of my AppleVolumes.default configuration file:
/mnt/raid/sunkid backups allow:sunkid cnidscheme:cdb options:usedots,upriv/mnt/raid/shewhomustbeobeyed backups allow:lovey cnidscheme:cdb options:usedots,upriv/mnt/raid/minime backups allow:minime cnidscheme:cdb options:usedots,upriv

When any of these three users connect, they see one volume named 'backups' that their machines are using for backups.

Similar configurations can be done in SAMBA but it will be slightly different in NFS, I believe.

Made the rookie mistake and ran the update before checking in here -> kernel panic on boot :blush: After removing SleepEnabler.kext, my machine will happily boot but kernel panic a little while later.

Here is what I have in my E/E folder:
  • AHCIPortInjector.kext
  • ALC889a.kext
  • ATAPortInjector.kext
  • IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext
  • JMicronATA.kext
  • NullCPUPowerManagement.kext
  • OpenHaltRestart.kext
  • PlatformUUID.kext
  • fakesmc.kext
Seems as if the KP only happens when I log in... have it sitting at login screen now for a while longer and it's still up.
Anyone have any pointers?

This is on a GA-EP45-DS3R as per my sig (left here for SEO ;) )

UPDATE: All is well after running KextUtility to fix permissions and rebuild caches. FWIW, I had removed the old SleepEnabler.kext from /E/E using an Ubuntu live CD, 'cuz that's what I had handy. To mount the HFS+ partition, I used
mount -t hfsplus -w -o force /dev/sda2 /mntrm /mnt/Extras/Extensions/SleepEnabler.kextrm /mnt/Extras/Extensions.mkextumount /mntreboot
After adding the new SleepEnabler.kext and running KextUtility.app, sleep now seems to work, albeit I cannot wake the machine with any USB devices. Using the power button works though and all USB devices re-connect without issues.

Some bittersweet news folks.
After all this effort WD have released a new firmware that fixes this problem. Good job since i still could not get it to work.

That's good news! Can you post a link the the new firmware and a description of what exactly it fixed?
