Automating config backups for B5-series & K6 switches


We have 17 B5-series switches & 1 K6 core switch and have been backing them up manually using the CLI. What are my options for automating these backups within the Enterasys/Extreme Networks set of solutions? Is that what NetSight does? What about Inventory Manager?? 3rd party solutions are OK but not my preference.
