Encrypted TimeMachine Network Backup
Authored by: boston_guy on Apr 13, '11 07:51:45PM

In my case, the conversion process didn't bring over the com.apple.TimeMachine.MachineID.plist file that identifies the sparsebundle as a backup destination. This made Time Machine create a new sparsebundle instead of reusing. I resolved the problem by copying the plist from the newly created sparsebundle.

(This was based on a tidbit from the following blog post http://thepracticeofcode.com/post/749686705/encrypted-rotating-time-machine-backups-on-snow)
