Angry rsync error

my command to run rsync by oracle user is:
rsync -u -a --delete /backup/FRA/stdby/ /net/backup/FRA
both path are in the same server
the owner of the directoties are oracleinstall
but I run this command and face to below error:
mkstemp .saghi.N01yMa failed: Permission denied
chown . : Operation not permitted
rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at main.c(620)
but if i run it by root user for the first time then I could run by oracle user without error.could anyone help me?

Could you show us what the permissions are like for both dirs and subdirs?

# ls -ld /backup/FRA/stdby
# ls -ld /net/backup/FRA
# ls -l /backup/FRA/stdby
# ls -l /net/backup/FRA
I suspect root can write the new folders to /net/backup/FRA, then the next time you run, the folders are already there and you can update their content as they have the popper permissions.
