Command Line Utilities Reference
Reporting Services includes several command line utilities that you can use to administer a report server. The utilities are installed when you select Administrator Tools during setup. Setup adds path information for each executable to the Path system variable so that you can run each executable from any directory on your computer.
You can specify arguments on the command line in any order, and you can preface them with either a minus sign (-) or a backslash (/). Generally, arguments are not case-sensitive. However, a common exception is the password argument, which is usually case-sensitive. You can include spaces between an argument and its value.
