rsync and multiple servers

I have an rsync daemon setup on a windows server that is backing up other windows servers.  I will need to backup 20 servers to this backup rsync server.  Will I have to setup multiple path modules in the rsync.conf file to make sure the correct folder gets copied?  will I need one for each individual server?  example:


[houbdc01]
path = //chadtest01/f$/houbdc01/public
read only = false
transfer logging = yes

[houbdc01]
path = //chadtest01/f$/houbdc01/users
read only = false
transfer logging = yes

[pevbdc01]
path = //chadtest01/f$/pevbdc01/public
read only = false
transfer logging = yes

[pevbdc01]
path = //chadtest01/f$/pevbdc01/public
read only = false
transfer logging = yes

I have multiple servers with multiple paths that need to by rsynced...any ideas on how this can be done more efficiently.  

Without the daemon I would run the rsync:

rsync  -v -rlt --progress --stats --delete "/cygdrive/v/Users/" "jaxback02::u/%computername%/Users/" 1>>

But the daemon doesn't support variables.

you should be able to use a batch file to do it.

Can you explain briefly about the deamon process?

A batch job can be written which has rsync( using cygwin ) and parameters passed using a properites file .

I have already been there.  That does not match my scenario

When you set up the remote side you can specify a destination path.  I have one path module on my host (Backups) but have 6 or 7 different machines pushing backups to it.  If you happen to be using deltacopy, you right click as shown in the attached and then you can specify a destination subfolder.
