Renaming SharePoint Application Pool


Is it possible to rename the Sharepoint 2010 application pools? I'd like to use something more meaningfull than GUIDs.

Thank you,

Answer 1

I would recommend just creating a new application pool and then go assign whatever service apps or web apps that you would like to use to that new application.

Answer 2

Remember to give the new application pool dbowner access to the content database and any other databases. Use Sql server management studio, click on the database. You may need to add the app pool account to the User node and give it dbowner rights for the database.
