If we want to view password of application pool identity user, use the below command. Just give the application pool name and it will show you the password of the identity user

 cmd.exe /c C:\windows\system32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe list apppool "Application Pool Name" /text:ProcessModel.Password 



Good and efficient tip to reveal the password. Sometimes application pool status shows as running even though user password is wrongly given. It will only stop if specific request comes to the web application using that apppool. Its better to do the password sanity with the simple script
