I am learning ArcGIS distributed installation. I planned like this picture.

enter image description here

I read from installation documents about server users group.

  1. agsAdmin
  2. agsUsers

Which machine contains user groups and users? Web server, SOM or SOC PCs? For example I installed Windows 2008 on PC-1, 2, and 3 machines, all of these are default accounts. I installed PC-1 as SOM. PC-2 as SOC machine. Where my usergroups should be located or all pcs has these groups.

Which version of ArcGIS for Server are you using? I'm guessing 10.0 but can you confirm? – PolyGeo Jun 1 '13 at 12:42
Yes my version is 10.0. Is this important? – barteloma Jun 1 '13 at 17:03
