(user) connection to GIS Servers from Catalog does not show secured folders?

First, some background before I ask my question: 

  • ArcCatalog version 10.2.1
  • ArcGIS Server 10.2.1
  • IIS Web Adaptor
  • Windows Domain (AD) User Store
  • Windows Domain (AD) Role Store
  • Authentication Mode: Web


Question.  I have noticed that when I create a GIS Server connection in ArcCatalog, with my own credentials, why is there a big difference when i create a (user) connection when compared to an (admin) connection?  The user connection will not give me visibility to any secured directory on ArcGIS Server, even though I have the correct AD Roles for all of these directories.  But, when I log in as (admin) or (publisher), I can see all the directories.



Can someone explain why that is happening?  Thank you, --Rick
