IIS Application pool identity

Server is Windows 2012 R2 fully up to date

I am trying to set the identity of an app pool to use an AD account (requirement by the software vendor) but IIS keeps telling me I have an incorrect password.  I have verified the password for the account used is correct.

The account has the following rights
Allow login as; service and batch
Deny login; interactive (locally) and via remote desktop

The account is not a member of administrators

Any ideas of where to look or permissions I may need to check?

Hello Sushil,

This worked and let me set the identity but after that the App Pool would not start anymore.

Seems someone decided to shorten the service account name so IIS was correct the account name I was using was incorrect.

Interestingly enough setting it from cmd allowed me to set the user even though it technically did not exist.

Anyway I now used the correct shortened account name and all is good.

The problem was due to another admin on my team shortening an account name and while Sushil's response helped me eventually identify the problem it was not the actual solution.
