I have been asked to try and reduce how much memory is being used on our Moss 2007 SP2 farm by reusing existing web application pools. My problem is that when you go through creating a new webapplication and choose the option labled "Use existing application
pool" under the section labled "Application Pool - Choose the application pool to use for the new web application" I can only select from a list of three application pools "(Default App Pool (network services), Shared Services, and OfficeServerApplicationPool
(NetworkService)" The drop down list does not mention any of the other app pools I have created for previous web applications.
My question is this, how do I pick an existing web application pool that I have created previously, rather than keep on creating new application pools for every new web application I create?
The farm consists of 3 FE servers 1 search, 1 Query and a Clustered 64bit SQL backend running SQL 2005 all running 64bit W2003 server R2
Thanks for any help you can provide on this.
