sol8 - rsync2.5.6 - cannot rsync at all

thanks for quick response. Yes it works ..
oracle at sys1:/oracle> rsync --rsync-path=/usr/local/bin/rsync
sys2:/apps/oracle/dba/test .

In both systems I have /usr/local/bin in $PATH for the user(oracle).
Wondering whether there is a way not to use "--rsync-path" cmdline.

thanks again

This is the key information that the remote ksh is telling you:  rsync
isn't on the default PATH.  You should either fix this, or use the
--rsync-path option.
