There's no need to have sharing enabled if the external HD if it's
attached to the server. Or if you initiate the backup from the server
itself, "pushing" the data to the backup location instead of "pulling"
it over from another computer.

Are you running your server off desktop hardware? I almost never hear
of "external" HDs attached to actual servers.
