Setting App Pool Name and Identity for a deployment

I have setup a basic deployment that seems to work just fine - the problem I am running into is that I am not seeing a way to set the following

1) AppPool Identity (To Network Services)
2) AppPool Name
3) I also had to update the line of code in AppRolla.psm1 FROM
Set-ItemProperty "IIS:\Sites\$($role.WebsiteName)" -Name physicalPath -Value $role.RootPath TO Set-ItemProperty "IIS:\Sites\$($role.WebsiteName)" -Name physicalPath -Value "$role.RootPath"

To make it work.

Thanks in advance

    Hi Mana,

    That's right, the script currently configures a separate application pool for each website and use app pool identity (which is basically an alias to NETWORK SERVICE account).

    It seems the only way to make app pool configurable is to modify approlla.psm1 to suite your can make a pull request then.
