Adding users to the agsusers group

The accounts that you add to the ArcGIS Server users group, agsusers, are those users who you expect to access the services over local area network (LAN) connections. The accounts that your Web applications run on should also be in this group. These users will not be able to administer the GIS server.

  1. On the SOM machine, click Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management.
  2. Expand System Tools > Local Users and Groups > Groups.
  3. Right-click the ArcGIS Server users group, agsusers, and click Properties.

  4. On the Properties dialog box, click Add. On the dialog box that appears, add those operating system accounts to which you want to grant access to the GIS server. These are typically the accounts that people use to log in to the network from their own computer.

    You don't need to add agsadmin members to agsusers. Administrative users already have user-level privileges to the services.

The users of the accounts you add to the ArcGIS Server users group may need to log off and back on before the new settings take effect.
