Files aren't copied into specified dest directory

I'm using rsync 2.6.9 on a Solaris 9 Sparc system. I invoke rsync like

/opt/csw/bin/rsync --port=55873 -avPi \ \

But this results in an error message:

receiving file list ... 
12 files to consider
rsync: mkdir "/opt/apps/Teamcenter/Production/" failed: No such file or directory (2)
rsync error: error in file IO (code 11) at main.c(529) [receiver=2.6.9]

When I do a 

        mkdir "/opt/apps/Teamcenter/Production/"

all is "well". When I run rsync again, files are copied to this 

a) Why did the mkdir from rsync fail?
b) Why does rsync copy files to this directory in the first place? That's
not what I want. I want all the files to be copied to 
/opt/apps/Teamcenter/Production/racebeta. Why does that not happen?

Thanks a lot,

Alexander Skwar
