rsync permission issue

I have changed group permissions on my the dir's that rsync synchronizes. Now I'm getting the following error on these directories:
opendir(dirname): Permission denied

rsync is being run as root, so I didn't think it would cause any problems...How do I fix this issue?

I found this on one website:

I was recently adding some new files to my rsync tree.  I found these errors:
receiving file list ... opendir(log): Permission denied
opendir(fptest): Permission denied
opendir( Permission denied
opendir( Permission denied
readlink dan: Permission denied
opendir(default): Permission denied
It took me a while to understand the problem.  It's a read issue.  rsyncd didn't have permission to read the files in question.  You can either make rsynd run as a different user, or change the permissions on the files.

Don't know if this will help or not.  What were the permissions before you made the change and what were the permissions after?
