CoClasses and Classes Description
ServerObjectTypeInfo The ServerObjectTypeInfo object which provides information about server object types to users without administrative privileges to the ArcGIS server.


The ArcGIS Server manages a set of server objects running across one or more host (container) machines. How those server objects are configured and run is defined by a set of server object configurations. Server object configurations can be added, removed and modified by users or developers who are members of the agsadmin users group, and therfore have administrator priviliges on the ArcGIS server.

Users and developers who are not administrators also need access to the list of server object types and the set of their properties that are necessary for programming applications with them. Users that are members of the agsusers user group, but are not members of the agsadmin user group can get information about server object types using the GetTypeInfos method on IServerObjectManager to get the IServerObjectTypeInfo interface.

IServerObjectTypeInfo provides read only access to a subset of the server object type's properties. These properties include:

Name: the name of the server object type (e.g., MapServer, GeocodeServer)

Description: the description of the server object type
