10.6: Set up Time Machine on networked AFP volume
Authored by: davidhoude on Jan 05, '11 09:57:50AM

Great article. Though this answer can be found elsewhere, I figured it would be best to include it in this articles comments as well.

If your remote file server is running Tiger 10.4, or Leopard < 10.5.6 you will run into problems with this solution due to the AFP protocol. You will need to enable Window/SMB sharing on the networked Time Machine server.

Unmount all afp connections to the server, and then mount via smb://x.x.x.x -- once connected, add that disk in Time Machine, and enter your credentials. Follow the rest of the steps in the article, and backups should work.

To get Hardware UUID from command line: system_profiler | grep 'Hardware UUID'
