Day-0 Workflow Example - Install / Update OnTap software

Uses 'software update' to install or update software.  Uses a Linux "Jump host" to copy software images to /etc/software on the controller.  Also disables HA cluster failover monitoring ('cf disable'), reboots after software installation, waits until controller is back up again, and re-enables cluster failover monitoring.

This is an example workflow that demonstrates how one might do software installs / upgrades as part of an initial automated configuration deployment.  (I will tie these commands into a much larger workflow before it's over.)

Comments and suggestions welcome!
