[PLUG] rsync error message

I'm using rsync to synchronize some data directories like this:

rsync -av Sample ~/POLARIS/eric/Business/

and I keep getting errors like this:

rsync: chgrp "/home/eric/POLARIS/eric/Business/Sample/RAND/.crontab.l.25lEFd" 
failed: Permission denied (13)

(This is on Linux and the destination (POLARIS) is a Samba share.)

Does this mean that I [have to|should] run rsync as root?
