After weeks of troubleshooting failed Time Machine backups, I finally got a backup to complete by excluding most of my data. Now, I am running a Verify and it appears to be hung, with the destination disk with no activity for some time now, and the progress sitting at 86%. The only error I see in the log is this:
[com.apple.TimeMachine.TMLogError] Failed to send message because the port couldn't be created.
I've also seen this error in the Time Machine logs on other Macs backing up to the server.
But this doesn't tell me anything. Does anyone know what this means?
