Try adding the quiet option to the rsync command, this will only show error messages instead of all files being transferred.

-q, --quiet  

This way you should easily see which files failed and why.

I  don't know, what happend, bit it's working now. i recreate ssh key's.
Which option i should use for full sync?
i mean when i remove a file from source is still in target.  
i create a file "a" in source it's comming in target then i remove a a file ia still in target after sync.

David FavorLinux/LXD/WordPress/Hosting SavantCommented:
The message some files/attrs were not transferred normally appears when one of the following is true.

1) rsync version mismatches on systems, where one rsync is super old.

2) File system mismatches on two systems, which can relate to either ACLs or XATTRs as rsync sometimes gets confused about reporting the precisely correct error.

Try switching to only using options rsync -av first + see if you get a clean run.
