This was a new feature that came in with the later IOS versions where you can use KRON a’la CRON to run tasks on a scheduled basis. In smaller environments it negates the need for things such as Solarwinds NCM and or RANCID.

# kron policy-list Backup
# cli show run | redirect tftp://<TFTP Server IP>/2801/config

Define the Kron Occurrence

# Kron occurrence Backup at 17:00 Wed recurring
# policy-list Backup
