Has anyone been successfully in using the group resource for managing IIS AppPool identities? I'm attempting to use the group resource to ensure that an AppPool identity (IIS APPPOOL\AppPoolName) is always in a specific local group and it errors out stating that it cannot resolve the username. Since AppPool identities are essentially "virtual" accounts, I'm assuming it's not possible with the group resource and that this is NOT a bug, just a side effect of these identities.

It's not a big deal as it can easily be worked around with either a GPO or using the PowerShell provider, but just figured I'd check to see if anyone has had any luck with this. Thanks all.
