Rsync failing


I am running a rsync command from one server to another server. Source server is having user - bfdeploy and destination user is ftcjbd. Though ftcjbd is owner of /ftc/envs/static/includes/vehicles on destination server, it is still giving error "mkstemp - Permission denied". I am not able to figure out, what is failing in between, even if I make it 777. Somebody help.
[bfdeploy@vmgdft01 ~]$ rsync -r -v -u --progress -e ssh ftcjbd@vmgdfd01:/ftc/envs/static/includes/vehicles/ /ftc/envs/static/includes/vehicles/
receiving incremental file list

Can you create files on /ftc/envs/static/includes/vehicles/ as ftcjbd user ?

Confirm that files in directory are 777 as well ?

Perhaps the file in question (error) had some other permission other then 777 and/or user and group of that file are different than other files ?

777 is not a golden hammer to solve problems.
rsync can only operate within unix permissions, so i suspect that the file that failed to rsync has restrictive permission when accessed with ftcjbd user.

I created test file inside said directory, one with 777 also. But it is still failing.

There is no file such file on either server - /ftc/envs/static/includes/vehicles/.test2_file.HAftdZ

Ok we got that covered i guess.
Just to be sure, this is solaris ?

Also, the rsync command looks strange, can you tell me exactly what are you trying to rsync from where.

Can you try the following and see if you get same error :
rsync -r -v -u --progress  ftcjbd@vmgdfd01:/ftc/envs/static/includes/vehicles/ /ftc/envs/static/includes/vehicles/

Basic rsync syntax is rsync options source destination
Where source and destination can be remote or local host depending which way you want to rsync.

Files will keep coming in vmgdfd01:/ftc/envs/static/includes/vehicles/. rsync command will be running from vmgdft01. If its /ftc/envs/static/includes/vehicles/ do not have files, which are present inside vmgdfd01:/ftc/envs/static/includes/vehicles/, command should pull those (only updated) files to vmgdft01:/ftc/envs/static/includes/vehicles/
