I wonder if you are writing the NetApp share path correctly for Cygwin.
Does "ls -l" on the path work in the Cygwin shell?  Does a local rsync
to or from a NetApp-mounted directory work?

You might be able to get more help from the cwRsync forum, even though
you aren't using cwRsync itself, since that community is knowledgeable
about rsync on Cygwin:
