Move Realms Into Different IIS Application Pool in Bulk

    Applies to:
  • SecureAuth Identity Platform
  • Legacy SecureAuth IdP
Deployment model:
  • Hybrid
  • On Premises
  • Version Affected:  All


    This can be useful when moving new realms into the appropriate application pools, especially if they were created in the wrong pool. In this example, we will be moving all realms in the "DefaultAppPool" to the ".NET v4.5" application pool.


    1. Take a backup of C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config\applicationhost.config

    2. Stop the World Wide Web publishing service (may ask you to stop logging service as well).


    3. Open C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config\applicationhost.config

    4. Find and Replace

    (Find " applicationPool="DefaultAppPool" and replace with " applicationPool=".NET v4.5")

    Note: The space after the first quotation.


    5. Start the World Wide Web publishing service (logging service may start again on on its own).
