Citrix XenApp XenDesktop 7.5 – The current credentials have insufficient privileges to access the database server and perform the necessary operations

Hello fellow Admins,

We might have a workaround for installing a new Site/DDC in your XenApp/XenDesktop farm and you can’t because of this pesky error,

The solution is to assign to the database user the following permission sets: public and securityadmin

PS: This permission set might be a setting that is not supported by Citrix!

    For our environment I had to add an inbound rule on the SQL server in Windows Fierwall for the sqlserver.exe allowing all ports as we have to use dynamic ports. As soon as I did this the issue was resolved.
