    Time Machine on 12.04LTS Server - (OSStatus error 2.)

    I've set up afp on my 12.04 headless server, and it's working well, but I can't seem to get a Time Machine backup going. It finds the two backup volumes (one for my wife, and one for me), and it has me log in, but then I get the OSStatus error 2, saying "Time Machine can't access the backup disk..."

    I've already chowned the /media/raidmount/Casey's Time Machine/ folder, and set permissions from 755 to 775 to 777, and nothing is working.







    Has anyone else had this issue, and if so, how did you fix it?

    No real idea, sorry.
    There seem to be some workarounds and hints on page 2 here : https://discussions.apple.com/thread...art=0&tstart=0

    There are quite a few google pages with that error.

    I figured it out! The folders in my RAID mount (under /media/raidmount/) were called Casey's Time Machine and Jessica's Time Machine. It was the spaces in those filenames that were tricking the setup up. I changed them to casey_tm and jessica_tm, and the backups work now! AWESOME!

    Most of the thanks goes to comment 78 in this post.
