My app pool keeps dying on me and after 5 tries I think it gets disabled.
From event log, source WAS:
A worker process with process id of '1504' serving application pool 'PowerShell Universal' was shutdown due to inactivity. Application Pool timeout configuration was set to 20 minutes. A new worker process will be started when needed. A process serving application pool 'PowerShell Universal' terminated unexpectedly. The process id was '1504'. The process exit code was '0xe0434352'. The Windows Process Activation Service failed to create a worker process for the application pool 'PowerShell Universal'. The data field contains the error number. The Windows Process Activation Service failed to create a worker process for the application pool 'PowerShell Universal'. The data field contains the error number. Application pool 'PowerShell Universal' is being automatically disabled due to a series of failures in the process(es) serving that application pool.
This is all I get in logs:

Server 2016, IIS 10.0, PSU 1.2.8
I upgraded from 1.2.4 as it had the same problem, but update didn’t help
Pretty much fresh install
<aspNetCore processPath="C:\PowerShell\Universal\Universal.Server.exe" arguments="" forwardWindowsAuthToken="false" stdoutLogEnabled="true" stdoutLogFile="C:\PowerShell\UniversalProgramData\logs\log" hostingModel="InProcess" />
edit: “Log on as Batch Job” permissions are set in GPO?
I would rather prefer to run IIS worker as “Network Service”, but I don’t want to lose credential store that I get with domain user.
edit2: ok I went into secpol.msc > Local Policies > User Rights Assignment and added domain user in all permissions where I saw IISAppPool defaults (bottom of the page in this doc).
Restarted apppool and IIS now, hopefully it holds
edit3: ok it looks like it might have been a permission issue after all, it’s been 20 minutes and I am not getting any more errors in event log so far. Will continue to monitor event log for errors.
