One option is to use device management software such as Kiwi CatTools. See the link below. This will allow you to schedule commands to be entered on a device on a scheduled basis. This would allow you schedule the backup commands to be run on certain days/times. Please see the link below for details on backing up CUE from the command line.
I've used Kiwi CatTools for some time to automate the backup of the configuration of routers, switches, etc. I have recently deployed our first CUE and have not had a chance to setup CatTools to perform the backup. It's on my list of things to do. The concept is the same as backing up the running config. CatTools will log in to the device and run a couple of commands.
Another option would be to use an expect script. If you have a linux box somewhere on the network you can pretty easily script the interaction required for thte backup procedure and then launch it via cron.
Ok here is the skinny. At this time KiwiEnt CatTools ver 2.20 or 3.0 does not handle the session command and or direct telnet to the CME to issue the backup cli. Both the session and direct telnet do not behave as a standard router. It does not return the expected charaters to initiate script for CatTools. They have it on the list of things to do.
If you have a machine that supports Expect (http://expect.nist.gov/) it's pretty easy to automate and schedule. I use a Mac (unix-based) and can use Expect and cron. (The autoexpect portion can also be used to do a quick automation script). I've just never tried a windows version of expect.
