Set App Pool Identity from Central Administration.

Today going through different tasks a situation arises where I had to set the app pool identity from central administration. Its important to mention that I have SharePoint 2010 Server deployed on my local machine. Setting Identity from IIS , then to web applications and then to advance settings and identity was a task which was in routine but to set it from Central Administration was a new one.

“Every thing whether small or big , if it gives you opportunity to learn something is great.

That was new thing for me , so I googled Smile. Some were showing commands and some were saying its not there.
Finally in a post , sorry as I just missed the Url of that, I found the solution. Its so simple and worth sharing for those who are now familiar with it.

Following are the steps to set app pool identity from central administration

  1. Open Central Administration.
  2. In Security Section click onto Configure Service Accounts.
  3. Now select the app pool of which you need to change the identity.
  4. then click on Register New Managed Accounts.
  5. Here provide the username and password.
  6. After its been successfully applied.
  7. Reset IIS.

Congratulations , You have learned a new thing today Smile.

Kazim.
