10.6: Set up Time Machine on networked AFP volume
Authored by: neilneil2000 on Sep 07, '10 01:25:27PM

This didn't work for me initially, and I believe it was because TextEdit does not save the file as 'plain text', instead, as a rich text file which although can be renamed as a plist, doesn't contain the correct formatting.

So, if you too are experiencing this problem then try the following:

1) At the terminal type "nano com.apple.TimeMachine.MachineID.plist"
2) Paste in the XML file and replace the UUID as described
3) Press ctrl+O to write the file to disk
4) Press Return to confirm the write
5) Press ctrl+x to exit nano

Now copy the file into the sparse bundle as instructed.
