Error updating the administration application pool credentials
By changing the record, you can assign a different account to act as the service account. Whether you change the account, the password, or both, you stay synchronized with other components in your deployment.
For example, if an Active Directory domain policy requires that all passwords expire periodically, you can update the password information for the service account in TFS when that password changes.
The app worked fine when launched locally from VS2008.
Now, I'm trying to get it to actually run on a network server.
If you your deployment includes more than one application-tier server, you must manually update each server with any changes to the service account or its password.
For more information about service accounts in TFS, see Service accounts and dependencies in Team Foundation Server.
I have seen an issue where all .config files got corrupted because the password contained “&” as one of the chars.
Had to change the password and update all .config files with a new password and reconfigure all services to use this new password.

The web service handles these requests through Windows Power Shell scripts.The Windows Azure for Windows Server development team also provided us with great help.There are a lot of products involved in the setup and this makes a simple walkthrough more difficult.The app has its own App Pool, running under a custom domain account. UPDATE: I couldn't help myself and continued to tinker.This domain account has also been given full access to the app folder. Now I'm getting a login prompt for the server on which the app is hosted, and, when I cancel it, I get "HTTP Error 401.
