When you install or re-configure SharePoint, one of the steps requests you to specify the details for the application pool and assigning the user account. The trick is the format of the user name you need to specify in ApplicationPoolUserName field - either <domain/user> or just <user>.

  • Use <username> only when SharePoint is the part of workgroup
  • Use <server>\<username> pattern in case of SharePoint being a part of Active Directory
Mixing these settings up cause you problem that user can't connect to that application pool
