I am trying to create a new web application using PowerShell. I keep getting the error application pool account is not found! How do I solve this?
I tried adding the new web application to DefaultAppPool as follows:
New-SPWebApplication -Name "Test WebApp" -ApplicationPool "DefaultAppPool" -ApplicationPoolAccount (Get-SPManagedAccount "WIN2K8R2SPTEST\Administrator")
You must create a managed account first for your win2k8r2sptest\administrator. Here is the sequence of steps
$cred = get-credential 'win2k8r2sptest\administrator' // enter the password here $adminMA = New-SPManagedAccount -Credential $cred New-SPWebApplication -Name 'Test Webapp' -ApplicationPool "DefaultAppPool" -ApplicationPoolAccount $adminMA
I've tested this on vanilla SPS2010 SP1. I think the process is identical to Foundation as well.
