Application Pools 1. Recycle all application pools (replace recycle with start/stop to start/stop all apppools) appcmd list apppool /xml | appcmd recycle apppool /in
2. Stop application pools with word “cheap” in it appcmd list apppool /name:”$=*cheap*” /xml | appcmd stop apppool /in
3. Set property enable32BitAppOnWin64 to true for all apppools (Filter apppools as in 2 if needed) appcmd list apppool /xml | appcmd set apppool /in /enable32BitAppOnWin64:true
4. Start apppools which are stopped appcmd list apppool /state:Stopped /xml | appcmd start apppool /in
5. Recycle application pools which are used in some applications appcmd list app /xml | appcmd list apppool /in /xml | appcmd recycle apppool /in appcmd list app /xml | appcmd recycle apppool /in (This might recycle one apppool multiple times)
6. Recycle apppools serving website “Default Web Site”
appcmd list site “Default Web Site” /xml | appcmd list app /in /xml | appcmd list apppool /in /xml | appcmd recycle apppool /in appcmd list app /site.name:”Default Web Site” /xml | appcmd list apppool /in /xml | appcmd recycle apppool /in
