We are running a sharepoint application on our 2003 windows server.  However When ever I try to go to the app in internet explorer the application pool stops in IIS.  It then kicks out Event ID 1057 " The identity of application pool is invalid"

Can anyone help with this ?

Has the account that's running the application pool change; eg: password expired?

Go to your IIS on the server in question (run inetmgr) under application pools and find the site in question, go to Properties, then the Identity tab, to the place where you can change the user/password.

Try starting it again from there.

Also, the account which is being used under the Application pool identity should be a member of IIS_WPG group. If the user is not a member of the group even then you get this error.

Thanks,
