Contributors netapp-asubhas

You can configure Internet Information Services (IIS) on your Windows Server to create a custom Application Pool account when you need to enable Active Directory read permissions for SnapCenter.


  1. Open IIS Manager on the Windows Server where SnapCenter is installed.

  2. In the left navigation pane, click Application Pools.

  3. Select SnapCenter in the Application Pools list, and then click Advanced Settings in the Actions pane.

  4. Select Identity, and then click …​ to edit the SnapCenter application pool identity.

  5. In the Custom Account field, enter a domain user or domain admin account name with Active Directory read permission.

  6. Click OK.

    The custom account replaces the built-in ApplicationPoolIdentity account for the SnapCenter application pool.
