You can use commands in the Netsh Network Policy Server (NPS) context to configure all aspects of NPS. The Netsh commands for NPS provide the same functionality as the NPS console, and the commands can be run manually at the netsh prompt or in scripts and batch files.

To run these commands from the command prompt, you must either enter the netsh nps context or prepend the context to the command. For example, if you are at the command prompt but have not typed netsh and then nps to enter the netsh nps context, you must type:

netsh nps command

Where command is the command that you want to run, including all of the required parameters for the command.
