I have an entry in my default domain policy to lock workstations after 30 min. it's causing a problem on one of my servers. is it possible to block just this entry in the defaut domain policy for just this server?

Yes, that's possible with GPO Loopback processing.
Move this server into its own OU. Create a GPO "Lopback" and link it to this OU; enable the Loopback mode as described in the article below, and set it to Merge. Reboot the server.
Now link an additional(!) GPO "DisableScreenSaver" or whatever in which you disable the screen saver in the User Configuration to this OU; this GPOs will be processed for every user logging on to the server, even though the user object is not in/below the OU.

Couple of options here:

You could also probably use a WMI filter, such as
SELECT * FROM Win32_ComputerSystem WHERE Name = 'MyComputer'
