Application pool FASTSearchAdminAppPool has been disabled. Windows Process Activation Service (WAS) encountered a failure when it started a worker process to serve the Application Pool

If you ever happen to change the password of your FASTUser, SPFAST for example, following are the steps you need to follow:

When you have a 2 server environment, just ensure, you change the windows service passwords in both the Admin and Non-Admin Server.

In the above instructions link, it has been specified that you should change the FASTSearchAdminAppPool account's identity in the IIS.

When you look at it for the first time in your admin server, you will be surprised to not find your IIS!

Not to worry, your password change has not done any damage to the IIS. FAST Installation by default installs the Web Server Role but does not install the IIS Management Console.

So add "IIS Management Console" role services to your Web Server Role.

And then you will be able to find your FASTSearchAdminAppPool, where you can now change your identity.

Ensure, you restart your FAST Servers.
