One application pool on one of our webservers crashed and we found this in the Eventlog, where can we find more information about it?

Time:   	10:57:55 AM

Attempting to manually start the application pool gives the following in the event log:

We are running IIS 6.0 on a Windows server 2003 R2, 32bits.

Unfortunately the events for application pool crashes in the event log do not give much information. Your going to want to run a tool such as IIS Debug, which will run on your server and wait for a crash to happen and log debug information about what occured.

App Pool crashes are usually because the AppPool Identity isn't a member of the IIS_WPG local security group... Additionally, the AppPool identity must have read access to the web content that is being displayed...
