Scheduled Config Backups

I have a script on one of my BigIP that takes a UCS archive file and copies to a secure remote server via SFTP. It runs daily via cron.


The script currently sits in /root and runs with the root users crontab. This means it gets wiped everytime we upgrade.


What would be a better way of doing this?


If I create a local user will they get a home directory that will survive an upgrade?
