service restart via batch script

Posted on 2006-11-14
Last Modified: 2008-02-01
I have a service that i have to restart quite often to get one of the apps working.

My batch script currently is

@echo off
net stop MySvc
net start MySvc

the problem is that the "net stop MySvc" sometimes asks for a Yes/No response as it has some dependency
So, i wanted to ask if there was a way to automate the 'Y' response in that batch script ..

Please let me know

Put a /y at the end of the net stop command
IE: net stop iisadmin /y
