Remarks

Tto succesfully connect to the ArcGIS Server using the Connect method on IGISServerConnection, the user account running the application must be a member of the agsusers or agsadmin user group on the ArcGIS Server. If the account running the application is not a member of one of these groups, the Connect method will return an error.

Once connected, use the ServerObjectManager property on IGISServerConnection to get a reference on the ServerObjectManager. The ServerObjectManager provides methods for listing the server object types and server object configurations that have been configured on the server. The ServerObjectManager also provides methods for creating server contexts to provide access to and allow for the creation of server objects running within the server.

If the user account running the application is a member of the agsadmin user group on the ArcGIS Server, the ServerObjectAdmin property on IGISServerConnection can be used to get a reference on the ServerObjectAdmin. If the user account running the application is not in the agsadmin user group, the ServerObjectAdmin property will return an error.

The ServerObjectAdmin provides methods for managing server object configurations, server object types, and the machines that host sever objects in the ArcGIS Server.
