Thank you. This helps get me closer. 

One machine shows rsync 3.0.9 and the other shows rsync 3.1.0. Running
"rsync --version" both show "ACL, xattr" are supported. 

Two questions, would the two different version cause it to fail? 

Second, does the order rsync "receives" the switches matter. Does "-A"
and "-X" need to be near the beginning of the 'string' command? (I hope
you get what I am asking, the order in which options are listed.)
