I had run the lockdown tool in silent mode but a typo in the properties file for the “SILENT_WEBSITES_TO_LOCKDOWN” attribute  (web site didn't actually exist) caused all connection pools to have the code management attribute set to null which stops them ALL!
I would expect the lockdown tool to fail if it can’t find the website entry which it did but it seems to have setall the application pools .NET CLR version: to null.
This caused them all to stop with not much idea of why. Eventually I figured it out and set them back to "No Managed Code" which fixed the issue.

Requested features:
1) The auto lockdown tool should sanity check these entries first before do anything and log the problem.
2) If it can’t find a site the lockdown tool should NOT affect any other sites
3) Failure logging can be much better
