In this short article, I am going to explain you about Retrieve IIS Application Pool Password. I had to induce the password for application pool account in SharePoint so as to require the control on an existing environment. Here are the tools helped me to get app pool password:

1. IIS Metabase explorer - a part of IIS Resource kit - ensure "Secure Data" is checked.

2. SharePoint Manager - excellent tool for exploring the server objects. simply navigate to the target application pool, get the password from properties pane.

3. using APPCMD command tool to get App Pool Password:
Appcmd could be a command tool for managing IIS 7 and higher than. you'll be able to notice it under: C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv.

To retrieve the IIS Application Pool's password enter this command:
appcmd list apppool “<Your Application Pool Name>” /text:* IIS 8.0 Hosting is European Windows Hosting Provider which focuses on Windows Platform only.
