Hi - i got a problem with time capsule stating all of a sudden: time machine error (-1) could not access the image (Name) Macintosh.sparsebundle

Hi - can anybody support me with a time capsule error message (-1) : could not access macintosh.sparesbundle? mny TXS

This is a Lion bug. compounded probably by the bugs in 7.6 and later firmware of the TC.
Rebooting the TC is disconnecting the users .. Lion is failing to unmount the TC after a backup. Reboot is forcing it to do so.
But if you download and install the non-toy version airport utility for lion.. which still has a disk page.
http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1482
Install and run that exclusively, on the disk page is a simple icon, disconnect all users.. wonder why they have that icon.. well now you know. So you don't need to reboot the TC. Just press the button (icon) so to speak.

  • Problem with Time Machine Backup or Maybe Not Time Machine

    The problem manifests after a Time Machine backup.
    I have an iMac 24-inch, Early 2008. iMac 8,1
    Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM.
    Last week I purchased two  4-Terabyte G-technology G-Drives. Each drive is equip with FireWire 800 and USB 3.0/2.0. In general use they seem to work fine on the iMac.
    I designated one drive as a Time Machine Volume. This is where the problem happens.
    Time Machine will do the initial backup just fine. Then it runs once per hour with no problem. Intermittently however, Time Machine will fail and report :
    “Time Machine couldn’t complete the backup to “hard disk name”.
    Unable to complete backup. An error occurred while creating the backup folder.”
    Interestingly enough if I try to open a folder on the Time Machine volume using the Finder I get:
    “The operation can’t be completed. An unexpected error occurred (error code -50).
    If I try to eject the volume I get the irksome “Cannot eject volume because it’s currently in use by one or more programs.”
    To resolve this I’ve tried everything, from the banal verifying permissions, to swapping the two G-Drives around, swapping out all the cables, etc.. When the error occurs I go into the shell and check with lsof and always find no software apparently holding or using that volume.
    Very frustrating
    I can force eject the volume, then remount the volume and things are back to normal. Same with restarting.
    This happened under OS X Mountain Lion and is now happening under a clean install of Mavericks.
    I thought that even though I don’t see any MDS  related processes using the drive, it might be spotlight, so I told spotlight not to index the volume. Problem still happens.
    I’ve found that one person had almost this exact same problem at:
    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4756742
    His solution turned out to be replacing the G-Drive with another brand new G-Drive.
    Unfortunately, I cannot return the drives to the Apple store because the boxes were tossed out. I also don’t relish trying to explain that the drives work just fine until some glitch that occurs either just before or just after a Time Machine backup.
    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    You can also contact G-Drive while the drives are under warranty (one year I believe).
    I have the same problem using Time Machine with the 2T G-Drive and my MacBook Pro. G-Tech emailed me a Firmware Update Utility app and, when that didn't solve the error message problem, they sent me a replacement drive and new cables, twice. The problem persisted; I get one or two backups each day and then the error message. I also can't copy anything to the drive and have to force eject it, so G-Tech suggested I see how well it worked with the USB cable.
    Time Machine works flawlessly with the USB cable and the G-Drive, so G-Tech suggested it is a problem with my Firewire 800 port. I worked with Apple Care over the phone, doing all the tests suggested in Eric's post - testing with Disk Utility, Time Machines interface with my User Accounts, the Operating System, then resetting Time Machine, etc. and then I took it to the Genius Bar so they could run the tests themselves. All looked like it should be fine (but they were using a 1T G-Drive and all testing was done within 30 minutes)...when I got home, after two good backups, I got the error message again.
    Apple Care finally suggested I make a Genius Bar appointment and sit at the store working with my MacBook, the G-Drive and Time Machine running until I got the error message, to prove the only thing left that could possibly be the cause of the problem, is the port.  I did this last Wednesday.
    It is 9 days later and I got my computer back this afternoon...the logic board was replaced because the Firewire 800 port is attached to it...I got my first Time Machine back up at 5:34pm...and the error message again at 7:34pm.
    The only solution, it seems, is to use the USB cable instead of Firewire. USB and Thunderbolt seem to be the direction Apple is taking, which is why so many people have been posting about this problem, here and elsewhere, with no real solutions from Apple. See this article:  http://www.infoworld.com/t/mac-laptop/how-cope-the-end-of-firewire-205957
    I hope the USB works for you too.

  • Could not access the central system - CUA problem

    Hi all,
    Please help me with this problem.
    Its just a test scenario, when everything will be good here, i have to do the same for Production.
    We just did upgrade our R3 system from 4.6 to ECC6.0.
    I created CUA on DB1100 ( Dev BW 4.6 ) with two child systems 1) DC1150 ( Dev CRM 4.6)
    2) DE1400 ( DEV ECC 6.0 ).
    Now everything is working fine between DB1100 and DC1150..
    It works like CUA ( DB1100) and child (DC1150) systems as it should be.
    But connection between DB1100 and DE1400 is not working fine. When you go to SU01 in DE1400, it does not allow me to change anything. It means connection is there and DB1100 is taking DE1400 as child system but when i am updating any user information or roles in DB1100 it is not updating child system DE1400.
    And when i went to tcode SCUA in DE1400 it gave me this error.
    "Could not access the central system DB1100".
    I dont know whats happening. I did same config in DE1400 as i did in DC1150. DC1150 is working fine but not DE1400. 
    The most weird thing is that DB1100 is thinking DE1400 as child system and i can not make any changes to DE1400 directly.
    please help me with this. What i can do to make this working between DB1100 and DE1400??
    i need to do the same in production if it gets passed.
    Thanks in Advance.

    Hi mala_swa,
    seems that you have a problem with the rfc-connections....
    Please check in both directions. The connection have to work without problems.
    Check SCUL in DB1100 - what is the status of the distributed users? Errors, unconfirmed?
    Check idocs in DE1400. Are there some? What is their status?
    The most common error is coming from not working rfc-connections. That brings for instance problems while generationg partner profiles, etc. Also the strict naming convention (log. system name=system name in CUA landscape = name of used RFC-connections) has to be considered....
    So that are some points, that you could check.
    good luck,
    Bernhard

  • Another problem with Time Machine

    This is the second time I have experienced the following problem with Time Machine. After 2 months of backups it gets to a point where backups fail and I cannot enter time machine. In each instance I have only used 110GB of the 500GB space.
    Is there a better solution to fixing this problem than deleting the sparsebundle? That seems to be the only way to get it to back up again.

    backup is failing again:

  • OS X Restore with Time Machine via LAN does not work

    Hi all,
    i did a full backup of my mac mini with mountain lion on a time capsule via LAN. Tried to do a full restore on a new hard disk and connect to the time capsule after i booted into a restore environment. I was able to choose the time capsule as the restore source and connected using my dedicated backup user, which was also used to create the backup before. But after i cannot chose my just created backup!
    Using a local USB disk with time machine everythings workes fine. But the main reason why i chosed time capsule is, that i can make my backups of all the used mac books and minis  via LAN / WLAN...
    So, is there anybody else experiancing this Problem?
    Regards,
    David

    Hi,
    tested OS X Restore with Time Machine via QNAP NAS Box - working without any problem. So with the Time Capsule it might be firmware problem?!

    Mac book pro stops responding after Maverick OS restart. Currently have a circle with a line through it after 20+ hours. Tried to shut it down and use the Time Machine to restore but no response. How can I restore with Time Machine if it will not start?

    sonjadg,
    you can purchase a replacement pair of grey installation DVDs for your MacBook Pro from either Apple or iFixit. If Startup Manager is only showing an OS X Installer volume, then it sounds like the Mavericks installer had a problem midway through its installation process. To fix this, you’re going to need to erase your internal disk and reïnstall your original version of OS X from the grey Mac OS X Install DVD, use Software Update  to get it back to 10.6.8 (presuming that your MacBook Pro originally came with Snow Leopard), and then restore from Time Machine.

    Go to START > ALL PROGRAMS > Apple Software Update. If it offers you a newer version of Apple Software Update, do it but Deselect any other software offered at the same time. Once done, try another iTunes install

    Try restarting your phone while you hold down the power AND the sleep button at the same time.
    This defenitly is a software bug and normally there should be this button.

  • Hi, I have a macbook pro with a new hard drive installed. My WD external drive backup on time machine now wont let me access the files. I get a prompt saying 'you do not have permission to access the files'

    hi, I have a macbook pro with a new hard drive installed and restored. My WD external drive backup on time machine now wont let me access the files. I get a prompt saying 'you do not have permission to access the files' After my new drive was installed I plugged in time machine and it started backing up. I paused it when I realised that it was running for more than a few minutes. I now realise that it probably started backing up the new hard drive all over again. Which makes me think that the original back up must be on the WD back I cant seem to access it. Any ideas would be helpful.

    I had to set up a new email ID, because I no longer had access to my old email address and Adobe was forcing me to change password, but I could not access the verification email. Now I cannot read my books under my new ID, even though I got Adobe support to set up my new ID.

    If you are unable to remember your password, security questions, don’t have access to your rescue address or are unable to reset your password for whatever reason, your only option is to contact AppleCare(or Apple ID Support), upon speaking to an operator you should explain that your problem is related to your Apple ID, this way you will not be charged for assistance, even if you don’t have an AppleCare plan.
    The operator will take you through some steps you may have already tried, however they need to be sure they have exhausted all usual approaches before trying to reset your account, so you should try to be helpful and show patience with the procedure.
    The operator will need to verify they are speaking to the account holder and may ask you some questions that only the account holder could know, and you will need to answer them if the process is to proceed.
    Once the operator has verified your identity they will send a message through to your device which contains an alpha numeric code, which you will need to read back to them.
    Once this has been completed they will send an email to your iCloud email address after a period of 24 hours, so you should check that mail is enabled in your devices iCloud settings.
    Upon receipt of the email, use the reset link provided to reset your password, after which you should be able to make the adjustments to iCloud that you wish to do.
