I have created a powershell script for deploying wsps to the SharePoint Farm. The script also uses psremoting to login remotely to the servers (WFE and Application servers) to recycle the application pools.

This works fine on the dev server but on UAT and PRD the applications pools on both WFE servers stop completely and have to be restarted manually.

Why is this happening? How can I work around it to get 0 downtime.

  • Technically you won't be able to have 0 downtime as the app pools have to recycle, bringing down your farm and degrading performance while things spin back up – Eric Alexander Jul 10 '15 at 14:15
  • Ok but shouldn't the recycle just start a new process and transfer everything over to that with the exception of session information? Any insight into why the WFE application pools stop but the Application server ones stay running? – codys-hole Jul 10 '15 at 14:17
  • Hi, any follow up? – codys-hole Jul 14 '15 at 15:50
