    Error "Permission denied in database 'master'" during installation

    Status: Validated

    When installing Nintex Workflow, the following error might occur:

    CREATE DATABASE permission denied in database 'master'. Could not locate entry in sysdatabases for database 'ccpservervm8_Nintex2010_1'. No entry found with that name. Make sure that the name is entered correctly. Changed database context to 'master'. Changed database context to 'master'. at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection.OnError(SqlException exception, Boolean breakConnection) at System.Data.SqlClient.TdsPa
    Grant the SQL permissions back to the Central Administration application pool account and run the installation again.
    This is caused by missing permissions on the SharePoint Central Administration application pool account. The application pool account associated with Central Administration requires permissions to create databases in SQL.
