How do I get around password access in a batch file for backup?

I want to schedule a batch file that will shut down the Lotus server R5 and will back up some files defined in the batch file. I have the code for that, but the problem is that my Lotus server is an additional server -- the password is set and the server asks for the password when it starts. How will I specify that step in the batch file?
I am not sure if you can, but if you are scheduling downtime everyday, I would say you should recertify the server ID and set its password length to zero. Then, you can clear the password. Your script will work fine after that.
