No it was not.
Unfortunately I discovered thru some searching on the support site that Time Machine does not do a proper of backing up "servers".
In the future I am going to have to find a different solution for backups.
In the end I had to do restore using the 10.6.8 server install CD, time machine and plain old fashioned rekeying of most of my server setup.
At least I was only using this server for file sharing nothing else.

There is an Archive function for Open Directory -- where you can write an encrypted copy to another location on your Server (or elsewhere on your connected network).
I took the attitude that if the solution to many problems is "re-Install Mac OS X" I would use that as my backup for the OS itself. I have had to reconstruct it once or twice now. I am not sure that would be a good solution for a heavily-used commercial Server either. (But then that should have secondary Servers and fail-over.)Mac Pro (Early 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8), & Server, PPC, & AppleTalk Printers
