Time Machine back up to window shared drive
by jheycie14 - 1/24/13 2:35 AM
I have tried creating a time machine back up to our windows shared drive.
However when I try to back up, it will throw up an error of :
" time machine could not complete the backup. the back up disk is not available."
So far here is what I have done.
MAC computer is authenticated by the AD, I was able to mount the network drive and it is being recognized by time machine. When I select my network drive for back up, it connects then will try to do the back up..afterwards will throw the error message stated above.
I created the sparsebundle and stuff and also enabled MAC to recognize network drive.
If it would help, this is the blog I have tried to follow:
I was able to do everything as the blog indicated except for backing up.
Any inputs will be greatly appreciated.
