The issue happens intermittently. Most of the time large files are sync'd fine.
I have run rsync on the failed file several times now and it hasn't failed. Is
there any debugging I can put in place ?

As mentioned, this is an issue with how rsync was compiled and/or linked.  If
it is compiled with large-file support in the OS libraries, then it supports
large files.  If the libraries don't support large files, or it was not
compiled knowing that it should support large files, then large files aren't

So, someone needs to figure out what AIX requires for proper compilation (e.g.
what support libraries are not installed, what options are not used, or
