Updating the Application Pool Identity Password

If you configured the Application Pool Identity to start with a specific user account, Nymi recommends that you use an account with a password that does not expire or change.

If policies in your organization require that the password for the user account expires, perform the following steps to update the password in IIS.
  1. Log in to NES server as an administrator and start IIS Manager.
  2. In the left navigation pane, expand the server, and then select Application Pools, as shown in the following figure.

  3. Select the NES application pool, the default name is NES App Pool.
  4. From the Actions pane on the right of the window, click Advanced Settings
