Any help on the following issue will be appreciated. 

How do I delete files or directories in my first level of directory that is
specified as host. Here is an example : 

rsync -avz --delete  ${SOURCE_HOST}:/mlinkfam/extract/sccs/pa/*

Giving above command I find redundant files or directory not getting deleted
from the first level of target directory /mlinkfam/extract/sccs/pa. However,
files or directories do get deleted from  subdirectories
/mlinkfam/extract/sccs/pa/qa or /mlinkfam/extract/sccs/pa/field.
