Interfaces Description
IServerObjectTypeInfo Provides access to properties of a server object type.
IServerObjectTypeInfo2 Provides access to properties of a server object type.
IServerObjectTypeInfo3 Provides access to properties of a server object type.


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 ServerObjectTypes and the set of their properties that are necessary for programming applications with them. Users that are members of the agsusers 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 ServerObjectTypeInfo objects.

ServerObjectTypeInfo objects include 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
