Description

This RPC is issued when Plan B wants to copy the box sbox located at addr to the box dbox. The request is sent to the destination box, which would retrieve the contents of the source box and update itself. The known attributes of the source box are sent to allow the destination server to cache box contents. The system call copy(2) sends such request to the server where the destination box is located.
