Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I got the following command with this error

rsync -avz --links -O /home/jansiatest/.jenkins/workspace/svn_to_demo/trunk/CPS/ jansia@ps27670.dreamhost.com:/home/tasklite/temp
sending incremental file list
./
rsync: failed to set permissions on "/home/tasklite/temp/.": Operation not permitted (1)

But the thing is that i don't want to change permission of "/home/tasklite/temp/". How can i set that?

Replace -avz with -rltvz. (The -a option is equivalent to -rlptgoD.)

Thanks man helped me out too. Though i only needed -rltv (not -rltvz) instaed of -av. Since i only used -av and not -avz to begin with :) –  Zeroz Sep 10 '13 at 17:37

Adding --no-p disables just permissions setting, leaving all other options setup by -a intact. Another issue often happening is inability to set times this can be sorted by adding -O which you already have in your code
