Any time there is a read error, rsync tweaks the checksum so that it doesn't
match, thus alerting the receiver that the file is bogus.  You need to figure
out what is causing this error from your OS:

rsync: read errors mapping
"/vmfs/volumes/cata-021-lun0/cata-920/cata-920-flat.vmdk": Invalid argument

That error is reported at the end of all the reading, and indicates that one of
the read() calls for the sender's file returned that errno.  If you strace the
sending side, you should be able to see what the parameters are to the read()
that trigger that OS error.
