A little weird one here - I'm troubleshooting some IIS issues across a few servers and sites.  Essentially, I have a PBX system that uses Windows servers at each location.  When I am on the management web page, and I drill down to a specific remote site server (to check it's status) we get a permissions error.

Now, how the PBX system works is fairly specific, and isn't necessarily the issue.  So, looking into the http logs on the remote server, i see a bunch I get a large number of AppPool errors:
