We can schedule tasks in RFS 6000 ? I want to make a schedule for save the running-config every week...

Interesting idea.  If the RFS6000 has a built-in task scheduler or scripting language it's not very well documented!

Presumably the service start-shell command gets you into the native OS and its cron task scheduler, but Motorola may not disclose the required password to mere customers. 

You may want to try scripting an SSH client to automate the series of commands you want to use to copy the backup file to another device.  Searching "expect" in Wikipedia can give examples.

Thanks for reply!
Let me explain it... We use the build-in radius server of RFS6000 for create users we are using one web page pre-configured, but this web-page just apply the new users (or the new config) in the running-config and dont save in the NVRAM.... Do you know if have one method for editing this web-page ?

If I make changes to captive portal web page in the GUI (WiNG 5.3.1) and commit and save, they show in my startup-config as lines beginning with webpage internal.  So they should be saved in flash.

You can also host web pages externally.  See around p.92 in  newbielink:http://www.michaelfmcnamara.com/files/motorola/WiNG5_Captive_Portal_Design_Guide_June_2011.pdf [nonactive]
