Where are all these quotes coming from? This makes it hard to read what
is actually being executed.

However, it looks like you're on system ral-bea-01-l and you're rsyncing
to ral-bea-01-l (i.e. the same system) ?!

Again, I don't know what you're doing that sprinkles all these quotes
everywhere, it really obfuscates stuff.

It looks like you need to double up on the verbose flag; use -vv
