Copy a file to a set of systems
salt-cp '*' [ options ] SOURCE DEST salt-cp -E '.*' [ options ] SOURCE DEST salt-cp -G 'os:Arch.*' [ options ] SOURCE DEST
Salt copy copies a local file out to all of the Salt minions matched by the given target.
Salt copy is only intended for use with small files (< 100KB). If you need to copy large files out to minions please use the cp.get_file function.
Note: salt-cp uses salt's publishing mechanism. This means the privacy of the contents of the file on the wire is completely dependent upon the transport in use. In addition, if the salt-master is running with debug logging it is possible that the contents of the file will be logged to disk.

The default matching that Salt utilizes is shell-style globbing around the minion id. See https://docs.python.org/2/library/fnmatch.html#module-fnmatch.
The target expression will be interpreted as a PCRE regular expression rather than a shell glob.
The target expression will be interpreted as a comma-delimited list; example: server1.foo.bar,server2.foo.bar,example7.quo.qux
The target expression matches values returned by the Salt grains system on the minions. The target expression is in the format of '<grain value>:<glob expression>'; example: 'os:Arch*'
This was changed in version 0.9.8 to accept glob expressions instead of regular expression. To use regular expression matching with grains, use the --grain-pcre option.
The target expression matches values returned by the Salt grains system on the minions. The target expression is in the format of '<grain value>:< regular expression>'; example: 'os:Arch.*'
Use a predefined compound target defined in the Salt master configuration file.
Instead of using shell globs to evaluate the target, use a range expression to identify targets. Range expressions look like %cluster.
Using the Range option requires that a range server is set up and the location of the range server is referenced in the master configuration file.
