OS X Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Time Capsule Backup Works On One, But Not All Computers?

May 13, 2012

We have a Macbook and an iMac, both on Snow Leopard. Set them up on TC for backup several months ago, and they worked for a while. Then it stopped working for no obvious reason, with the message: 

The network backup disk could not be accessed because there was a problem with the network username or password. Open Time Machine preferences to select the network backup disck and re-enter the correct username and password. 

Of course userame and password were correct, because, first of all, they had not been changed, and second, because I could put in the wrong pw and it immediately would reject it. As it is, it takes it, counts down for 120 seconds, and then gives the above message. 

Bought a new Macbook Pro, using Lion, and it works with the TC, seemingly proving that all settings on the TC are still good. Tried resetting TC. Tried the Cmd-Alt-p-r reboot, but neither worked.

Hardware :: How To Setup Time Capsule To Backup Two Computers

Jul 22, 2009

I am interested in using a Time Capsule to run Time Machine automatic backup for both computers in my house (Mac Mini and Macbook). Is this easy to setup for two computers? The manual says on page 1 that it can do multiple computers, but nowhere else in the manual to they mention how to set it up.

Congratulations on purchasing your Time Capsule. Read this guide to get started. The new Time Capsule offers you the simplicity of fully automated backup for your WiFi network. Using the Time Machine application in Mac OS X v10.5.2 Leopard or later, it's easy and automatic to back up all the computers on your network to a single Time Capsule.

Hardware :: Time Capsule With Multiple Computers - Backup Priority Details?

Jun 1, 2010

I have 2 Macs in the house, with a 3rd coming soon. I backup mine to an external hard drive using Time Machine, but neither of the others have a backup plan in place.

One user doesn't really need a robust backup solution, but the person getting a mac soon does.

I was thinking I could kill two birds with one stone if I got a Time Capsule. Now I've read all about how you can partition Time Capsule and stuff like that (and I'm technical enough that I could probably pull that off if I wanted to, but I don't think I do). What I haven't found out is what the Time Capsule does if two users have been syncing to it, and on the next backup it runs out of space.

OS X :: Restore Time Capsule Backup On Clean Snow Leopard Reinstall

Oct 16, 2010

I've got a Macbook Pro with Snow Leopard installed, but it has been going sort of sluggish lately so I've decided to do a clean reinstall of Snow Leopard to try and improve things. I've got an up-to-date backup with Time Machine to my Time Capsule. When I do a clean install of Snow Leopard, will I be able to easily restore the files that I want to keep and the applications that I want to put back on my system (with their settings)?

OS X Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Time Machine Not Completing Backup But No Error?

Apr 15, 2012

I have Time Machine backing up my MacMini Snow Leopard Server to an external harddrive.  When the backup runs, it never completes, but it also does not throw an error message. It just gets stuck around 300MB or so and eventually starts over. As you can see it does not seem to backup everything. I have tried using TimeTracker to see what it might be getting stuck on but I can't really make heads or tails of it. I have even removed the old backup and started a new one. It backs up once fully (I think) and then after that it just gets stuck like this. 

I should mention the drive it backs up is two separate partitions SnowLeopard Server Volume and PrimeRoot Volume, both of which need to be backuped. I was thinking maybe a permissions issue? But I just don't know where to look.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Time Machine Will Not Back Up One Of Two Computers

Mar 14, 2012

I am using time machine to back up to a time capsule, two different macs (a laptop & a desktop).  The time casule is connected to the network & the desktop backs up fine.  The laptop did as well up until a few months ago, now the laptop fails each attempt to back up. 

The problem may be temporary. Try again later to back up. If the problem persists, use Disk Utility to repair your backup disk.  

Latest successful backup: 11/16/11 at 10:24 PM 

I have tried to repair the laptop backup volume with no change.  I do not really want to reformat the entire disk as it is working fine with the desktop.

Hardware :: Time Capsule / Save Leopard Backup Before SL Update

Sep 5, 2009

I just recently purchased a Time Capsule and backed up my machine while still running OS 10.5. Then I updated to Snow Leopard... however, my university just informed me that their exam software might not be compatible with SL, which means I would have to revert to 10.5 (which I have saved on the time capsule) come December for exams. A few questions:

1) This will be possible correct? I will be able to revert to the previous operating system using the back-up file?

2) Is there a way I can "lock" the oldest back-up file on time machine so that when the drive becomes full it deletes other, more recent files, to free up space but does not delete my latest (oldest) file which still has the old OS on it?

Hardware :: Fresh Leopard Install - Connecting To Previous Time Capsule Backup?

May 5, 2009

From time-to-time I obsessively reinstall Leopard on my MacBook Pro. I clone my drive to an external, install Leopard totally clean (erasing everything), and then drage back the contents of my home folders. I don't transfer anything from my Library folder, I like to start completely clean and rebuild my settings manually. Yes, I'm obsessive, like I said from before.

So now I've got my clean Leopard install. Everything is perfect. How do I back up to the existing sparseimage that's on my Time Capsule?

I realize it will be a fairly large first sync, but I'd love to still be able to grab deleted files from last October if need be.

Anyone know of settings or .plist trickery to make this happen? Can I simply choose that sparseimage in the Time Machine system preference?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Time Machine Backup Freezes On Initial Backup Attempt?

Mar 20, 2012

I just purchased a Seagate 3 TB USB 2.0/3.0 external drive to use as my time machine backup drive.  I have a MacBook Pro that was purchased about 3-4 years ago.  The MacBook Pro has a 120 GB hard drive and is currently running MAC OSx 10.6.8.  I also have another WD 1 TB FireWire external drive that I use to store all of my media files.   

After I followed the instructions for installing the new Seagate drive for use with the MAC OSx, I initiated a time machine backup.  It very quickly determined that it needed to back up almost 900,000 files totaling just about 400 GB.  It started the backup process at a rate of about 1 GB per minute.  In a little less than an hour it reach 53 GB and remained there for an additional two hours before I decided to stop the backup.   

Once I got the backup stopped, I deleted the backup and decided to look at my energy saving settings.  I noticed that the "Put drives to sleep whenever possible" check box was checked, so I unchecked that option and restarted the MAC.  I then initiated the time machine backup again.  Like the first time it quickly determined that it needed to backup the same amount of data as before and started the backup process at a rate of about 1 GB per minute.  Before going to bed at around 11 PM last night it was at about 60 GB so I thought I was out of the woods (having gotten further than the 53 GB earlier).  When I woke up this morning at 5:30 AM it was sitting at 69 GB. 

I am really frustrated at this point and don't know why the time machine back up would be failing on a brand new hard drive. PS - I was previously using a Seagate 1.5 TB USB drive as my time machine backup and never had any issues with it.  I decided to use the 1.5 TB drive for a different purpose, which is why I have the new 3 TB drive to use as a backup.  And I still have the full backup on the 1.5 TB drive just in case anything were to go awry.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot Seem To Set Up Time Machine Using Time Capsule On It

OS X :: Time Capsule Won't Allow Two Computers To Connect?

Feb 3, 2009

I have a time capsule and a MacBook Air for the last number of months. Both had been working perfectly and even when my neighbour came over with his MacBook, we could quite easily network between the two computers and connect the two to the internet via the time capsule... Furthermore my MacBook air backed up regularly to the time capsule using time machine without a problem.

Problem. I got a new iMac and uploaded an imprint of my MacBook account and data onto it from the time capsule. I now cannot connect the two computers to the time capsule simultaneously, cannot network between them or cannot have both connected to the internet at the same time.. Furthermore, neither will back up to the time capsule using time machine. Very frustrating, because I know that it is something very simple causing this, but I am new enough to Mac and cannot resolve.

OS X :: Time Capsule Error After Snow Leopard

Aug 29, 2009

I was able to install Snow Leopard without any problems - but I can't do a Time Machine backup to my Time Capsule. The drive is not recognized and I get a "25299" error which refers to a problem with my keychain. I've gone into Keychain Utility and (several times) have deleted all the Time Capsule entries, but the problem keeps replicating itself. I was able to run backups earlier today and also reset the settings on the Time Capsule, so I'm sure it's not a problem with the drive.

Hardware :: Install Snow Leopard On Time Capsule

May 29, 2010

I was thinking of the possibility of buying the Time Capsule from Apple and install on its hard drive Snow Leopard and then use it as the main drive of my imac 27 via wifi. Is this possible? If not, would it be possible if I bought an airport express? I would buy another external hard drive, install Snow Leopard on it and then connect it to the airport express. This way it would appear online, and on preferences I would select this drive to use as the main OS drive and then unmount the internal drive of the imac.

It keeps saying you need a Time Capsule from '2008' to use this feature. I thought they were all from 2008+? So is this really saying it won't work with the first generation time capsule? The second generation being the one that added wideband support?

Hardware :: Multiple Computers Share ITunes Library In Time Capsule?

Jan 31, 2008

The goal: To have all computers in the house use the same itunes library. Now the new ReadyNAS by NetGear has the option to put all the itunes music on there, and it shows up on the network as a shared library. Is there a way for multiple computers to share the same library on a external hard drive, or in this case, time capsule. I can see where a networked itunes library (like a shared computer) would work just fine for playing music, but you run into problems when say, you want to transfer songs to a ipod, iphone, etc.

One option would be for one of the computers be the main music server, and have that computer be the one to do the music transfers, but what if that computer is off. Multiple computers on same network, sharing same itunes library, but still able to manipulate the files?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Backing Up MBP To Time Capsule - Disk Utility Stop Verifying HD

I've been having trouble backing up my MacBook Pro to my Time Capsule (hasn't backed up in months) so I ran Disk Utility and it gave the following error:Disk Utility stopped verifying "Hard Disk". This disk needs to be repaired. Start up your computer with another disk (such as your Mac OS X installation disc), and then use Disk Utility to repair this disk.So, if I do that, will I end up losing whatever is on my hard disk? And how do I start up the computer using the OS X disk? Just put it in and restart?

OS X :: Time Machine-backup Multiple Computers?

Jul 6, 2009

First off, I have an iBook G4 with Leopard, and an iMac Intel that I just recently upgraded to Leopard. I have used my external drive to previously backup my iBook with Time Machine. I would like to start backing up my iMac too, with the same drive. Would this present a conflict as far as the multiple backups from different systems on the same drive? Obviuosly space would be an issue in the long run...250GB drive, devoted only to backups. Also, if/when I utilize Boot Camp on my iMac, will the Windows partition backup through Time Machine?

OS X :: Snow Leopard And Time Server Requests

I have been having somewhat sketchy network problems since upgrading to Snow Leopard the biggest one is that large updates to Time Machine fail with a network error. So I have been doing some digging and I noticed on my stats at OpenDNS that since installing Snow Leopard the requests to time.apple.com have gone from 175/day (already more than necessary) to 1745/day. Also the requests made by OpenDNS updater to myip.dnsomatic.com have gone from 36/day to 1462/day.

OS X :: How To Backup For Snow Leopard With Time Machine

possible to back up all your data with Time Machine on Leopard and then install Snow Leopard and use Time Machine to restore all of your pictures/movies/music and the like?

I'm going to assume it's a no go since Time Machine is capable of a full system backup -- it may just turn your system back into Leopard?

OS X :: Cannot Backup To Time Machine With Snow Leopard

Feb 18, 2010

I have a Apple Time Capsule which is used as a Time Machine Backup Facility and also a Wireless Hub for File Sharing and Internet Connection. I've been using Leopard for a couple of years without any significant problems. The other day, I installed Snow Leopard and suddenly, I'm facing a number of different problems and errors regarding backups to the Time Machine with the Time Capsule.

First, I was facing problems with a Case Sensitive error and now that I have ejected the Time Capsule, the Disk Utility has come up with a different name altogether and now I have the added problem of disk space on the time capsule. I know I could re-format and start over but that would defeat the whole point of my backups. The Time Machine/Capsule should re-write over the old backups when making space for new ones but its just giving me an error about not enough disk space.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot Backup To Time Machine

Jun 4, 2012

I had to have the old hard drive replaced on my macbook pro running Snow Leopard 10.6.8 operating system. It was replaced at the apple store. I brought it home and yesterday restored it from the last time machine backup of my old hard drive which was Friday.That appears to be the only backup on the external hard drive I've been using with Time machine.

Today, it gets an error message. "Time Machine could not complete the backup. This backup is too large for the backup disk"...etc.

It is almost like it is trying to completely back up the new hard drive even though it was just restored from it. Is it because it thinks it is a different drive or something because it is a new hard drive?I don't want to delete the one good backup that I have but, I want to be able to use time machine to back anything up.
