rsync'd db and now rpm -qa doesn't work

Hi guys, I've been rsyncing data from one server to another and this has proven successful except in the case of rpm, where rpm -qa gives the following error
D: opening db environment /var/lib/rpm/Packages joinenv
D: opening db index /var/lib/rpm/Packages rdonly mode=0x0
D: locked db index /var/lib/rpm/Packages
D: closed db index /var/lib/rpm/Packages
D: closed db environment /var/lib/rpm/Packages
D: May free Score board((nil))
I've tried rebuilding the database with no success and booting the server int single user mode and running rpm --initdb with no success, anyone able to help? I've also removed the /var/lib/__db blah files prior to running these commands.

Looks like it's a bug then as I followed these instructions... That's unfortunate Thanks for your help.
