@sanjampet; What does a link to Xsan servers have to do with Time Machine?
My external WD HD used exclusively for TM was going into what seemed to be an infinite spotlight reindexing loop after I upgraded to 10.6.8. The only way I have been able to ge it to stop was to select that drive under spotlight privacy settings. Does anyone know of any negative effects of doing this, other than the obvious negative of not being able to use spotlight on my TM backups?
Read Pondini's excellent TM articles; http://pondini.org/TM/Home.html
Spotlight can't read the TM volume; it should be excluded as you have done.

Is excluding TM volume from Spotlight something "new" with Snow Leopard? I was running 10.5.8 Leopard for 3 years with the same TM drive and never had this problem.
Thanks for the reply.
