Application Pool problem

  Asked By: Devika    Date: Dec 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2785

I have a rather urgent problem I need to fix quickly - all our
SharePoint sites are down because of it. All we get in the web
browser is "Service Unavailable". As far as we can tell, this only
starting happening after our regular Monday morning reboot of the
server. I think I've tracked the problem down to the SharePoint
application pool. It was stopped when I first looked at it, so I
started it and then tried to load the site again. I got the same
error, so I rechecked the pool and it was stopped again. I then
checked the event viewer and found this: "Application
pool 'MSSharePointPortalAppPool' is being automatically disabled due
to a series of failures in the process(es) serving that application

I'm not all that knowledgeable on application pools, and I can't
even run central administration to verify that this particular
application pool is being used. And maybe it isn't even the app pool
after all that's causing the problem. Does anyone have any ideas or

Was there a recent password change? I see this often when the password for the App Pool identity is changed. The fix  for this issue is to update the credentials on the Identity tab of the App Pool properties.

The first thing that I would check is the identity of the app  pool. Is the account correct, Is the password correct etc.? Also make sure that that account has the proper rights

If that is not the problem, look in the application  event log for hopefully some more insight.

… You might make sure that the account isn’t getting locked out and that it has the Log On as a service  right – some corporate group policies set this value – so the SharePoint app pool  account (and services if running SPS) should have the LogOnAsAService right.

It turned out that SP1 for Server
2003 was mistakenly installed (we usually like to research our SP's
before installing) and a conflict with ISAPI Rewrite was causing  the
problem. We upgraded to a new version, and everything's running
