man dirvish.conf:

 tree: path [alias] (S)
    Specify a directory path on the client to backup.
    If  path is prefixed with a colon the transfer will be done from
    an rsync daemon on the client otherwise  the  transfer will  be
    done through a remote shell process.

so in your vault/branch config file:
tree:           :backup-all

on the client in /etc/rsyncd.conf:
        path = /
        exclude from = /opt/etc/rsyncd.exclude
        uid = root
        auth users = backup
