Mar 29th 2009 Problem with Time Machine after changing boards

After changing the motherboard of my MacBook I needed to reset the configuration of Time Machine. I found this link very useful:

Summarizing you need to :

$ su -

$fsaclctl -p /Volumes/YourVolume -d
$ mv .theOldOne .theNewOne
$ xattr -w com.apple.backupd.BackupMachineAddress theNewOneWithSemicolons Backups.backupdb/YouMacName
$ fsaclctl -p /Volumes/
YourVolume -e

restart your laptop.
