Experts,

             How would I execute a powershell file test.ps1 from a batch file so that no user interaction would be needed. (i.e. the user would not need to start up Powershell-if possible)?

Thanks, Missymadi

What if the Powershell required a snapin "ActiveRolesManagement" ? And the script I have is a powershell script. How would I execute that from a batch file. Such as, an sql file is executed by a batch file.

Add it in the PS script :)

Add-PsSnapIn Quest.ActiveRoles.ADManagement

Then all you need in your batch file is this:

PowerShell yourscript.ps1

You can have more, you can prevent PS closing, or other things, but for the most part you need nothing more.
