I have already searched the forums for this but none like this so far. Maybe I missed it.
Here is the error:

rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (8 bytes received so far) [sender] rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(434)

Just double checking - but what form are you calling it in? You're ensuring one end(source or destination) is local? Are you running either over an NFS mount?

i am also receiving the same error [on local drives across two servers]; if it is NFS, will that cause a problem?
does anyone have a solution for this yet?

You might have a problem by setting an absolute path for your remote server. what you are doing is asking rysnc to create a directory directly under root - that would give you a "permission denied" error message.
