HI All,

Attempting to configure ArcGIS for Server 10.1 for the first time. I am getting held up at granting the ArcGIS Server account access to the database.

ArcGIS server resides on Server A, database (SQL, SDE) resides on Server B. I have created a publisher connection to Server A vai ArcCatalog. I am attempting to publish a service to Server B, however upon registering the database that resides on Server B, I receive an error that the "item is inaccessible". I assume this means that Server A cannot read the database on Server B. I know that I have to grant read access to the ArcGIS Server Account, but I am having difficulty figuring out how to do this.

Anyone have any suggestions?
