Timemachine working only with some (newer) versions of macos?

  • Hi all!

    I looked for this problem but couldn't find anything so I thought I'd give it a try here.

    I am running OMV Release: 5.6.5-1

    with support for Timemachine enabled.

    Since the beginning (some earlier version of OMV V5) I had the computer I am typing right now doing it's backup via Timemachine (over WiFi).

    It is running macos 10.14.x and the backup works perfect.

    Last week I put an old iMac (Mid 2007) to life by installing the latest possible OSX which is 10.11 (El Capitan)

    After everything was setup on this old iMac I tried to configure Timemachine but it won't work.

    This iMac under OS 10.11 doesn't even see the Timemachine-Server (my OMV server)

    Is there something with OMV V5.x and older Mac versions?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

  • Hi! I can't imagine that it has to do something with specific versions. I use it on all my devices (oldest is 10.13) and there never occurred any problem with timemachine.
