We are using rsync version 2.6.3 and do not intend to upgrade to the latest
version. I am using the following command:-

rsync -arv --files-from=./myfile /app/dd/gesb user at rrslx905:/var/log/hhsb

I want to mention the file list in the "myfile" as follows:-

ABCD/cdef/xyz* (Considering there are more than one files existing with
names beginning with xyz)

Once I try to transfer files using rsync using the command above, I get an
error saying  rsync: link_stat "ABCD/cdef/xyz*" failed: No such file or
directory (2)

Shouldnt it read all the files with names beginning with xyz and start

Please help
