Re: New Firmware Version 1.02.12 for the My Book World I & II (10/19/11)

I mentioned earlier about the no ago shares when trying to back up to Timemachine. Left it connected via Ethernet last night. Dunno what changed but it's sorted. Backup done. Cheers WD, this seems alright so far now. That was my only niggle.

Re: New Firmware Version 1.02.12 for the My Book World I & II (10/19/11)

[ Edited ]

Unfortunately it is not working for me. I just received a replacement drive due to the previous bad firmware. I installed the new drive and updated it to the latest 1.02.12 through the web configuration page using auto update. Time machine worked for about 3 hours when the drive disappeared. I was still able to log in to the drive through the web interface. This was the same symptom I had with the previous firmware. I restarted the drive through the web interface. This time, it did not solve anything. Time machine can see the drive, but when it starts to back up it says "looking for back up drive" for a few minutes. Then, a windows comes up showing the backup file in the drive and then I get an error message: the backup disk image "/volumes/WD_Backup/Matias's macbook pro.sparsebundle" could not be accessed (error -1).

Here is an image:wd and time machine.png

Re: New Firmware Version 1.02.12 for the My Book World I & II (10/19/11)

Ok, I've installed 1.02.12 and TM still doesn't work.

 

I've trided it both ways:

1. While trying to backup onto a special share I've got "The operation couldn’t be completed. (OSStatus error 2.)" error.

2. While trying to backup onto a sparsebundle placed in Public shared folder I've got "The operation couldn’t be completed. (OSStatus error 2.)"

 

BTW, can somebody tell me what should be in /DataVolume/.timemachine/ ? On my NAS it's clean, like that:

/DataVolume/Public # ls -la /DataVolume/.timemachine/
drwxr-xr-x 2 WD_Backu root 6 Oct 23 12:58 .
drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 101 Jan 17 2011 ..
/DataVolume/Public #

 

Is it OK or I've deleted something useful?

I can't connect to my MBW 4TB (white lights) via my router. I've updated to Firmware version 1.02.12, no problem, but  I can't use Time Machine the way I want to.

 

If I connect the MBW directly to my computer (Lion 10.7.2), it shows up all right via Bonjour, and I can use Time Machine. If I connect it to my router (Thomson TG784), I'm unable to use Bonjour. I can connect to it using the IP number (and I can change the unit's settings), but I still can't use Time Machine. 

 

Also, I cannot connect to the unit via the router on my other Mac (running Snow Leopard 10.6.8). 

 

Someone on this thread suggested turning HDD standby off, which I did, but it doesn't help. Someone else suggesting turning Twonky server off, however I can't figure out how to do so.

 

I have SSH access disabled, as well as MioNet. 

 

Something strange: When I look at users (Basic mode), WD_Backup (Time Machine User) seems to be diabled – there is a red cross beside it.

 

Any suggestions (besides waiting for a new Firmware update)?

Here's another clue to what might be wrong with the firmware: I am able to connect to the MBW via the router, but ONLY if the computer is connected via ethernet to the router. Wireless connection fails. 

 

To sum it up:

  • Connect the computer to the router with a cable – Time Machine works fine.
  • Connect the computer to the router wirelessly – The MBW is not visible on the network.

Anyone else can confirm this?

Re: New Firmware Version 1.02.12 for the My Book World I & II (10/19/11)

This firmware clearly has some issues - but there are several of us on here who for whom TM is working well over wireless,  so while we wait for a new firmware I'd continue tweaking settings on MBW and OsX (and post some logs) to find out why it works on some systems, and not others.

 

With some detailed MBW and Console logs the WD staff reading this (you are there, aren't you?!) could maybe work out what is going wrong - I know from experience it's impossible to help anyone based on a description of the problem.

 

In case anyone missed my earlier post, here's what fixed all the problems for me - no idea which steps actually helped!

 

Os X

 

1) Complete permissions repair from recovery disk, NOT within a normal session.

2) Run Keychain First Aid (in Keychain access menu

 

NAS:

 

3) Disable HDD standby

4) Changed password for user wd_backup

5) Corrected NAS time setting

 

I'm also using a static IP, no NTP service, ftp & afp enabled, ssh disabled, nfs enabled with an "*" (wildcard) in the "IP allowed" field. 

 

Good luck!

Thanks a lot, I think this is what finally made it! :-)

 

I had tried it before, but it is important to also set the router to always use the same IP address for the MBW. So, now the router is set to always use 192.168.1.68 for the MBW, and the MBW is set to use 192.168.1.68 as well (Basic Mode > Network > Network Mode: Static).

 

Now I'm just waiting for the indexing to finish and backup of ~150 GB to begin... ;-)

I think this DD with the original firmware is bad ! So now it's very hard to make some evolution... Bad soft team by WD !!
