Recycle IIS App Pools

We have a system which regularly requires the IIS app pools to be recycled, I haven’t yet gotten round to writing this in PowerShell or scripting with some form of orchestration software. For now it’s just a good old batch script. I’m going to remove most of the script and just leave the important lines –

appcmd.exe recycle apppool /"ASP.Net v4.0" 
appcmd.exe recycle apppool /"ASP.Net v4.0 Classic" 
appcmd.exe recycle apppool /"Classic .NET AppPool" 
appcmd.exe recycle apppool /"DefaultAppPool"

Our service desk run this script on demand. My goal is to get this setup in Microsoft System Center Orchestrator with Service Manager so it can become a self service fix for the affected department. A little way off yet as time has not permitted me to return to this, like many things once you have a ‘fix’ no matter how thrown together it’s on to the next problem.
