            Bug ID: 11979
           Summary: rsync -X fails without need
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.1
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
          Assignee: [hidden email]
          Reporter: [hidden email]
        QA Contact: [hidden email]

Problem: "rsync -aX remote:/somepath ." fails, if the remote site doesn't
support extended attributes. Sample session:

# rsync -aX aix1:/usr/man .
rsync: extended attributes are not supported on this server
rsync error: syntax or usage error (code 1) at main.c(1554) [server=3.1.1]
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=3.1.1]

Since this is a read-only access on the remote side a warning should be
sufficient.
