I am trying to figure out if it is possible to make a backup of my OSX installation using the Disk Utility in the Installer to back up to a network drive. I have DHCP setup on my router, but I'm running into several problems. First, the installer doesn't seem to boot when I have an ethernet cable plugged in, and second, if I plug it in after it boots, the 'Network Utility' sees it as 'inactive'. I've tried using terminal to restart en0 to no avail.
Has anyone tried using a network drive for backups? Did you get it working?
I guess my first step would be to get connected to the network.
Anyone have any hints, tips, or suggestions regarding this?
