Creating Pools in IIS for web sites

I just went to a new web site running IIS 7 and I have a few classic asp web sites and a few web sites. All of the web sites currently run in DefaultAppPool.

I would like to create a few pools so I can separate a few of these web sites in to these separate pools so I'm not bringing everything down while I figure out my errors.

Can someone point me in the right direction of how to create a pool in IIS and how to move a web site into that pool? I have never attempted this before.

Thanks in advance for the help.

To create IIS application pool follow the procedure below

1.Open IIS Manager. For information about opening IIS Manager, see Open IIS Manager (IIS 7).

2.In the Connections pane, expand the server node and click Application Pools.

3.On the Application Pools page, in the Actions pane, click Add Application Pool.

4.On the Add Application Pool dialog box, type a friendly name for the application pool in the Name box.

5.From the .NET Framework version list, select the version of the .NET Framework required by your managed applications, modules, and handlers. Or select No Managed Code if the applications that you run in this application pool do not require the .NET Framework.

6.From the Managed pipeline mode list, select one of the following options:
¿Integrated, if you want to use the integrated IIS and ASP.NET request- processing pipeline.
¿Classic, if you want to use IIS and ASP.NET request-processing modes separately. In classic mode, managed code is processed by using Aspnet_isapi.dll instead of the IIS 7 integrated pipeline.

7.Select Start application pool immediately to start the application pool whenever the WWW service is started. By default, this is selected.

8.Click OK.
