Day-0 Command Example - Copy File on Linux Host

Copies a file from a source directory to a destination directory.  Initial reason for creating this command was part of a larger workflow of software installs using a Linux "Jump host".  The idea is that the Linux Jump Host has a software repository that contains the go-to OnTap images.  The software file is copied from the repository directory to /etc/software on the controller.  Then, a 'software update' can be used to update the OnTap software.
