IIS 7.0 and 8.0's worker process terminates after a period of inactivity by
default. Because of this, if Secret Server is in its own Application
Pool, the Application Pool will stop after a period of no requests.
To change IIS to not stop the worker process, follow these steps:
- Click Start -> Run, then type in "inetmgr", and then click "OK"
- Expand the server icon on the left panel and click on "Application Pools"
the Application Pool Secret Server is running as. To determine this,
Expand "Websites", then the Website Server Server is running on. Find
and click on the Virtual Directory (if it is running on one) and click "Basic Settings" on the right panel.
This will indicate Secret Server's Application Pool.
- Right click the Application Pool, and click "Advanced Settings"
- Set the idle "Time-out (minutes)" option in the Process Model section to 0
- Set the "Regular Time Interval (minutes)" option in the Recycling section to 0
- Click "OK"
