Kron does not support interactive commands. If you attempt to configure an interactive command, the policy-list will be removed from the config after it runs. You can configure "file prompt quiet" to disable file system prompting, or consider using something more powerful like the Embedded Event Manager (see

Another option, if you are looking to periodically back up your config, is to use the IOS Config Archive feature. This will allow you to periodically take snapshots of your config, and save them to a wide variety of locations. See for more details.
