We observe that IIS App pool password is being changed every time the server restarts. So each time, we manually update the password to make the website running properly.

Why does this happen and what is the solution to fix this issue permanently?

This cannot happen on its own. Something/someone has to be changing the password.

Look in the server's Security event log for event IDs 627, 628, 4723, or 4724. These events will tell you which account changed the password and when. If you don't find any of these events, you probably have to turn on logging for them in the Group Policy Management Console.

If in a domain environment, you would probably have to check the Security event logs on the domain controllers.
