There is the ArcGis Server on the machine 192.168.**.22

Machine name is MAPSERVER.

User name and password for ArcgIS Server are "test" and "testtest" (for example)

ArcGis Server options are: clusters - name "default", computer "MAPSEVER", protocol "TCP port 4004".

I want to connect to this ArcGis Server. I used code

ESRI.ArcGIS.ADF.Identity identity = new ESRI.ArcGIS.ADF.Identity("test", "testtest", "default");
ESRI.ArcGIS.ADF.Connection.AGS.AGSServerConnection agsconnection;
agsconnection = new ESRI.ArcGIS.ADF.Connection.AGS.AGSServerConnection("MAPSERVER", identity);
IServerObjectManager SOM = agsconnection.ServerObjectManager; 

I get error `

"Identity error"

Could you please explain your question in detail? Because I was wondering that how you are connecting the ArcGIS Server (Through code/some application/desktop,Arc Catalog etc) & I guess that your machine have only the code and through that code you are connecting the AGS server is that correct? – Sunil Aug 23 '13 at 10:10
I do not know what kind of information do I need to substitute at domain, host, password, user. – novicegis Aug 23 '13 at 10:34

The web ADF was discontinued in 10.0 and above. The help you cited was from the 9.3 help. Now ESRI wants you to use either Geoprocessing models or Server Object Extensions.
