Launch Terminal from /Applications/Utilities
Enter the following command: sudo tmutil disablelocal
Enter the admin password when requested to disable local backups

Good to go now :)

Rather than that, you can navigate to System Preferences and select Time Machine. And on the On/Off selector switch it to off.

All set.

And if you have a dedicated network share where network users can put their TM data; un-share this by using the 'Server Admin' program. If you need step-by-step explanation, please let me know.
