Is this a bug? I want to create a new time machine backup in my Mac Mini server and the shared drives are not showing anymore in Time machine pref panel? It must be.. it was working perfect in 10.8. ---------- Edit 10 minutes later.. OMG!!! I can't believe Apple's ineptitude in this. So basically I read online just a moment ago that Apple decided to give up on the AFP protocol in Mavericks and use SMB2. So I remembered that back in the day when I tried to use a time machine destination on a WINDOWS shared drive, it wouldn't show up as a valid destination. So I checked on my server and voila!! I could see that Mavericks was actually sharing my drives over SMB and not AFP (you can see the number of connected clients). I made an experiment: turn off file sharing, turned it back on, DISABLE SMB and only allow AFP. On my laptop I remounted the shared drive and.. as suspected.. my shared drive now shows up as a valid destination drive. I repeat: so much for the freaking "it just works". So Apple decides to scrap AFP and turn SMB on by default but... time machine doesn't work over smb!!! I'm speechless.
