Network Config Utility Scripting??

We're using the VLANing features of the Network Configuration Utility on our virtual server host servers and trunk about 25 VLAN's per host. We'd like to automate creating these VLAN's each time we build a new host server. Is there a way to script (VBScript or CMD) creating these in the Network Config Util?

Here is the link to the Network Config utility Users Guide, which describes the various settings in the xml file:

The best way to configure is to create one server as the source with the settings you want. Capture that configuration from the command line with cqniccmd /sc:\temp\source.xml. copy the xml file to a network share you have access to, or copy the xml file to the same folder on each of the target servers (C:\Temp).

On your target servers, open a command prompt and run cqniccmd /cC:\Temp\source.xml.

If you manually edit the xml file, be sure to check for sytax errors with cqniccmd /pC:\Temp\source.xml

Hope this helps,
