I'm having a problem with an identity pool on a new IIS server.
Here's my Event viewer text:
Event Type: Warning Event Source: W3SVC Event Category: None Event ID: 1021 Date: 6/12/2009 Time: 1:44:50 PM User: N/A Computer: <scrubbed> Description: The identity of application pool, '<scrubbed>' is invalid. If it remains invalid when the first request for the application pool is processed, the application pool will be disabled. The data field contains the error number. For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp. Data: 0000: 69 05 07 80 i..?
Google suggests that it's something to do with the user of the app pool which I set in the "Identity" tab. The most common problems are:
- Setting the wrong password
- Not adding the user to the IIS_WPG group
I've tried and retried both of these (and restarted the IIS service), and nothing seems to be fixing it. What other things should I be looking for.
FWIW, the identity user is a domain (not local) user. This same setup is working fine on another (supposedly identical) server/setup.
