5. Modifying the Application Pool of a Deployed Service Application
From time to time, you may
need to change the application pool of a deployed service application.
This could occur because of performance issues, or company protocol may
dictate the change. To modify the application pool of a currently
existing service application, complete the following steps.
Open IIS Manager. Browse to your server and open the Sites node.
Find and expand the SharePoint Web Services IIS website and select your service application, as shown in Figure 7.
