I've had a mini server for several years. Since upgrading to Mavericks I -=CANNOT=- get time machine to reliably back up. I am running latest server OS on the mini-server, and latest update of Mavericks on machines. I've tried everything I can think of including reinstalling the server OS, wiping all backups completely from the attached drives, nothing works. What happens: I select network disk on remote machine, it states "enter your name and password for the server so that time machine can access it" I do that, and then I get: Time machine can't access the backup disk "backups-1" The operation couldn't be completed (OSStatus error 2.) It shouldn't be difficult to just use a server for time machine backup - that's basically ALL this computer needs to do!
