WD MyCloud + Time Machine

Experienced an issue with a WD MyCloud drive & Mac OS 10.12 Sierra backing up to the drive via Time Machine. The backup failed with the error “Resource temporarily unavailable”.  I rebooted the MyCloud drive and the same issue occured. I noticed there was a firmware update 04.04.05-101. Applied this and it fixed the issue.

Here are the release notes to the firmware fix.

Firmware Version 04.04.04-101 (09/20/2016) Resolved Issues:  Resolved issue where macOS-10.12 user is unable to create a new Time Machine backup
