The -o and -g option fall-back to --numeric-ids if name conversion is not
possible.  Is an rsync daemon involved in the transfer?  If so, see the
comments about numeric-ids in the "use chroot" section of the rsyncd.conf
manpage.  If not, run rsync under strace to see why the password/group lookups
are failing.
