Chatted this up on Ryver IBMiOSS.
Apparently if the $PATH isn't set on the remote account rsync executable
not found.
So, like, if the shell for the account on the remote machine is
/usr/bin/bash (or on IBM i /QOpenSys/pkgs/bin/bash) then you just add the
appropriate path to the .bashrc
You're making sure /usr/bin is in $PATH for a Linux account or
/QOpenSys/pkgs/bin in the $PATH for the IBM i remote account.
But I'd guess this would happen on both boxes if the remote account were
set up default. With IBM i, probably the remote account was never set up
for the new bash via the Db2 for I SQL incantation or via PASE *chsh*

Hi Pete,

You can fix this adding :

--rsync-path=/QOpenSys/pkgs/bin/rsync

BTW: You can remove the "-e ssh”

Trying to run rsync from a linux box to IBM i. I found some older
articles about how to set it up and it certainly is easy to install. But,
I am trying to understand what is needed at the IBM i end of things to
allow rsync to run. I have SSH configured and when I run an rsync command
to synchronize files I get this error (not real domains):

[phelgren@873822-prodLR70 test]$ rsync -avz -e ssh
pete@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx <mailto:pete@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>:/home/pete ./
pete@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx <mailto:pete@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>'s password:
bsh: rsync: not found
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far)
[Receiver]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(226)
[Receiver=3.1.2]

I can connect using ssh with both a password and a private key so that
is working. But, the rsync command doesn't seem to be found (although bsh
as a shell is odd...or not) and I can run rsync in the pase bash shell and
linux with no problems.

Suggestions?
