As Matt mentioned, the exclude needs to not include any part of the path
that is outside of the transfer.  The simple rule is that your excludes
should be matching the names you see in rsync's verbose output (just
prepend a slash if you want to anchor them).  In this case that would be
trimming off everything prior to "/Server":
