You can edit an existing application pool to configure settings such as display name, version, publisher, path, start folder, parameters, and description. You cannot change the ID or access group of an application pool.

If you need to ensure that View Connection Server launches the application only on RDS hosts that have sufficient resources to run the application, see Configure an Anti-Affinity Rule for an Application Pool.
