NAME

       salt-cp - salt-cp Documentation

       Copy a file or files to one or more minions

SYNOPSIS

          salt-cp '*' [ options ] SOURCE [SOURCE2 SOURCE3 ...] DEST

          salt-cp -E '.*' [ options ] SOURCE [SOURCE2 SOURCE3 ...] DEST

          salt-cp -G 'os:Arch.*' [ options ] SOURCE [SOURCE2 SOURCE3 ...] DEST

DESCRIPTION

       salt-cp  copies  files from the master to all of the Salt minions matched by the specified
       target expression.

       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
          master or minion is running with debug logging, the contents of the file will be logged
          to disk.

          In  addition,  this tool is less efficient than the Salt fileserver when copying larger
          files. It is recommended to instead use cp.get_file to copy larger  files  to  minions.
          However, this requires the file to be located within one of the fileserver directories.

       Changed  in  version  2016.3.7,2016.11.6,2017.7.0: Compression support added, disable with
       -n. Also, if the destination path ends in a path separator (i.e. /,  or \ on Windows,  the
       desitination  will  be  assumed  to  be  a directory. Finally, recursion is now supported,
       allowing for entire directories to be copied.

       Changed in version 2016.11.7,2017.7.2: Reverted back to the  old  copy  mode  to  preserve
       backward  compatibility.  The  new  functionality  added  in  2016.6.6 and 2017.7.0 is now
       available using the -C or  --chunked  CLI  arguments.  Note  that  compression,  recursive
       copying, and support for copying large files is only available in chunked mode.

OPTIONS

       --version
              Print the version of Salt that is running.

       --versions-report
              Show program’s dependencies and version number, and then exit

       -h, --help
              Show the help message and exit

       -c CONFIG_DIR, --config-dir=CONFIG_dir
              The  location  of  the  Salt  configuration  directory. This directory contains the
              configuration files for Salt master and  minions.  The  default  location  on  most
              systems is /etc/salt.

       -t TIMEOUT, --timeout=TIMEOUT
              The  timeout  in  seconds  to  wait  for replies from the Salt minions. The timeout
              number specifies how long the command line client will wait to  query  the  minions
              and check on running jobs. Default: 5

   Logging Options
       Logging options which override any settings defined on the configuration files.

       -l LOG_LEVEL, --log-level=LOG_LEVEL
              Console logging log level. One of all, garbage, trace, debug, info, warning, error,
              quiet. Default: warning.

       --log-file=LOG_FILE
              Log file path. Default: /var/log/salt/master.

       --log-file-level=LOG_LEVEL_LOGFILE
              Logfile logging log level. One of all, garbage, trace, debug, info, warning, error,
              quiet. Default: warning.

   Target Selection
       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.

       -E, --pcre
              The target expression will be interpreted as a PCRE regular expression rather  than
              a shell glob.

       -L, --list
              The  target  expression  will  be  interpreted  as a comma-delimited list; example:
              server1.foo.bar,server2.foo.bar,example7.quo.qux

       -G, --grain
              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.

       --grain-pcre
              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.*’

       -N, --nodegroup
              Use a predefined compound target defined in the Salt master configuration file.

       -R, --range
              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.

       -C, --chunked
              Use new chunked mode to copy files.  This  mode  supports  large  files,  recursive
              directories copying and compression.

              New in version 2016.11.7,2017.7.2.

       -n, --no-compression
              Disable gzip compression in chunked mode.

              New in version 2016.3.7,2016.11.6,2017.7.0.
