Problem creating publisher connection to ArcGIS Server 10.1 SP 1

I'm using server 10.1 with the built-in user/role store, the GIS Server authentication tier, and the Web Adaptor with admin access enabled.  I am trying to set up a publisher connection in ArcCatalog on a desktop machine.  The only connection I can make successfully is when I enter the primary site administrator username and password.  However, I want to use a different account (a member of the server Administrators group).   Is this not possible?  I think I'm missing something obvious like the fact that this approach isn't allowed. 

I don't want to set up Windows-based user store/Web tier authentication because this configuration forces all the services in the site to be secured and they need to stay open, unsecured, and 'public'. 

Thanks for any help!
