SharePoint 2010 Application Pool GUIDs

SharePoint 2010 has some rather strange application pool guids.  The GUIDS are unique to each enviroment and therefore allmost impossible to tell what they are on face value.  This causing some issues when troubleshooting, so here is a quick guide to figure out what the Applications Pool GUID’s actually are.

In SharePoint Management Shell (Powershell) run the following command

Get-SPServiceApplicationPool

This will return the following

</p>
Name                                     ProcessAccountName
----                                     ------------------
BusinessDataConnect                      DOMAINsp2010.bcsserv
ManagedMetadataService                   DOMAINsp2010.mmdserv
PerformancePoint                         DOMAINsp2010.perfpnt
SearchAdmin                              DOMAINsp2010.searchapp
SearchQuery                              DOMAINsp2010.searchquery
SecureStoreService                       DOMAINsp2010.secstore
SecurityTokenServiceApplicationPool      DOMAINsp2010.apppool
SharePoint Web Services Default          DOMAINsp2010.farm
SharePoint Web Services System           DOMAINsp2010.farm
User Profile Service                     DOMAINsp2010.userprof
VisioGraphics                            DOMAINsp2010.visioserv
WebAnalyticsServiceApplication           DOMAINsp2010.webanserv
WordAutomationService                    DOMAINsp2010.wordauto
<p>

To find the GUID run the following

Get-SPServiceApplicationPool | select Id, Name
</p>
<p>Id                                      Name<br />
