  1. Success! It can be confirmed that this method will not work if your target machine OSX is older then 10.5. Upgraded my Tiger machine to Leopard and backups started right away with the script @sunkid provided. Thanks all!
  2. I'm going to try upgrading the server to Leopard and see if that makes a difference.
  3. @Glyphon, what system are you using to connect to the hard drive? My server is using Tiger still and I'm curious if that could have anything to do it. I know snow leopard updated the AFP protocol version.
  4. Ok well that explains that. I don't have a chance to play with this right now. If I find anything later I will post it here but I'm not sure if I will get anywhere. Thanks for the help!
  5. Well its even weirder because its doing it for everything. Hard Drive: Server Size | Mounted AFP Size in 10.6 Storage: 395.76 GB | 424.95 GB Misery: 69.75 GB | 74.89 GB Clyde: 279.34 GB | 299.93 GB Macintosh HD: 93.04 GB | 99.9 GB Each drive, in 10.6, is increased by about 7% +/- 1gb. So I'm thinking this could be less of a Time Machine problem and an OS problem. Time Machine is correctly reflecting the size of the drive according to 10.6, but 10.6 is not showing the correct size of the hard drive. I don't know if this is whats messing up my backups or not. When I get home, I could try just plugging the hard drive into 10.6 and seeing if that shows the correct hard drive size and then it could be an issue with the AFP share. So my point is, I think even if i get a hard drive bigger then 300 GB, 10.6 may still boost it up 7% like it's doing to all my other drives.
  6. I'm uploading my logs from watching backupd in Console. Perhaps we can compare it to someone's logs with a working backup in 10.6? A few things I notice from looking at the logs: afp://admin@donald.selfip.org/Clyde is my home server. Clyde is the name of the hard drive hooked up to the server. When backupd refers to the drive on line 4-6 it calls it Clyde-1. Not sure why. I can erase, partition this disk, whatever if there are any suggestions Another thing. Time Machine says in System Prefs 299.02 GB of 299.93 GB available. If I login to the server it has the correct size of the drive: 279.5 GB. The logs show 269.28 GB available on line 9 which makes sense because using the shell script I had the sparsebundle made for 270 GB. In the finder the afp share shows 299.02 GB as well. The same happens if I mount any of the other drives hooked up to the server, the size of the drive in 10.7 is larger then it is on the server. The server by the way is running 10.4.11 So it's doing the same thing as I mentioned before and as @robbtheknob but I'm not seeing the same message you are. The logs are below 9/8/09 9:02:18 AM com.apple.backupd[630] Starting standard backup 9/8/09 9:02:18 AM com.apple.backupd[630] Attempting to mount network destination using URL: afp://admin@donald.selfip.org/Clyde 9/8/09 9:02:19 AM com.apple.backupd[630] Mounted network destination using URL: afp://admin@donald.selfip.org/Clyde 9/8/09 9:02:19 AM com.apple.backupd[630] Warning: Destination /Volumes/Clyde-1 does not support TM Lock Stealing 9/8/09 9:02:19 AM com.apple.backupd[630] Warning: Destination /Volumes/Clyde-1 does not support Server Reply Cache 9/8/09 9:02:34 AM com.apple.backupd[630] Disk image /Volumes/Clyde-1/Winston.sparsebundle mounted at: /Volumes/Time Machine Backups 9/8/09 9:02:34 AM com.apple.backupd[630] Backing up to: /Volumes/Time Machine Backups/Backups.backupdb 9/8/09 9:02:40 AM com.apple.backupd[630] Backup content size: 172.7 GB excluded items size: 5.7 GB for volume Macintosh HD 9/8/09 9:02:40 AM com.apple.backupd[630] No pre-backup thinning needed: 200.47 GB requested (including padding), 269.28 GB available 9/8/09 9:02:40 AM com.apple.backupd[630] Waiting for index to be ready (101) 9/8/09 9:02:41 AM mds[37] (Normal) DiskStore: Creating index for /Volumes/Time Machine Backups/Backups.backupdb 9/8/09 9:02:41 AM com.apple.backupd[630] Stopping backupd to allow ejection of backup destination disk! 9/8/09 9:02:42 AM com.apple.backupd[630] Indexer unavailable (200) 9/8/09 9:02:42 AM com.apple.backupd[630] Copied 0 files (0 bytes) from volume Macintosh HD.
  7. I haven't been able to get this to work. It mounts the sparsebundle and then when it gets to Indexing Backup it just unmounts the disk and sets the next backup to an hour from now. I had this running fine on 10.5 but its since broke when I updated to snow leopard. I have tried running the shell script as root and doing it manually both no go. Any ideas?
