Hey team,

Trying to setup TM to my smb share in windows 7. It can see the share fine but I'm getting this error trying to backup... I've been tailing the system.log also...

Error 45 creating backup disk image

-macbook-pro com.apple.launchd[1] (com.apple.netauth.sysagent[765]): Exited with exit code: 255
-macbook-pro com.apple.backupd[764]: Error 45 creating backup disk image
-pro com.apple.backupd[764]: Failed to create disk image
-pro com.apple.backupd[764]: Backup failed with error: 20
-pro com.apple.backupd[764]: Ejected Time Machine network volume.

Anyone run into this? Or is this not a supported mac operation?

I gave this a go about a month ago, I ended up getting it working with getting my Linux Server to look like a Xserve - but ended up reverting it back since for some reason after doing that everything messed up with the other Linux / Windows machines on the network.

No one else has this issue?

Everyone has, Time Machine ain't supposed to back up to a network (apart from let's say a Time Capsule)

Create your backup image on the local machine with disk util or command line, then copy it to the samba share.

Note that TM puts a massive load on SMB and your backup may not work beyond the initial few rounds. Bummer when that happens as mounting the image (to fix) over the network is time consuming and a royal pain.

As far as I know, TM can't handle Samba because of specific file permissions that don't exist in a Samba share. You can do NFS or AFP instead.

Not to mention it would be slower than smoke signals to transfer stuff.
