F5 OS r-Series cron job schedule


Hello All,

I am looking for some assistence to schedule a cron job on the F5 OS host for taking regular backup for the F5 host system and exporting it to the remote path.

I am trying to execute commands from bash terminal however it doesnt seems to be working.

Is there a way we can run commands using admin username to get the output from the F5 OS.

[root@appliance-1(hostname) ~]# su - admin -c show system
Invalid command





For a cronjob I have not tried this myself but you can use the rSeries RESTCONF API for such tasks as I have made an article about this:

Thank you for the response. Will try using RESTCONF API.
