We suggested the following based on what we found with the information we have so far:
1. Revize the following Microsoft article:
Apparently there is a patch that can cause this problem because of dlls that were not installed properly when SP2 for Windows Server 2003 was installed or are in earlier versions.
Microsoft suggests that you remove and reinstall SP2 for Windows Server 2003 on affected machines:
"To resolve this problem, reinstall Service Pack 2 for Windows Server 2003 on the web server. This will bring up all IIS 6.0 components to the correct file versions"
According to the customer, reinstalling SP2 for Windows Server 2003 solved the issue with the DefaultAppPool stopping consistenly on certain package servers.
