I am trying to back-up both of our family's MacBook Pro and MacBook Air to Mac OS X Server 10.8.2.


When I try to do a backup form the laptop I get an error: Time Machine couldn't complete the backup to "server". The backup disk is not available.

This happens from multiple Mac clients, all running 10.8.2.

Mac mini, OS X Server, Mid 2011 Mac Mini SSD
