How to Automate Ntdsutil Commands

You can automate Ntdsutil by creating batch files or scripts that contain a series of Ntdsutil commands. Many Ntdsutil commands that perform writes, open by default a message that asks users if they really want to perform a particular operation. When these messages appear, the program will pause and wait for keyboard input. Use the Popups %s command to disable these messages when running Ntdsutil from a batch file or script. For example, to disable these messages, type the following:

popups no

To reenable the display of these messages, type the following:

popups yes

It is good practice to disable these messages only when you are scripting Ntdsutil commands and to reenable them as soon as you finish scripting.
