Whilst installing the BusinessObjects XI Portal Integration Kit for SharePoint; if the install stops with the following error:

“Failed to add BusinessObjects XI 3.1 SharePoint 2007 PIK to SharePoint. Please verify that you have all the necessary access rights and provide the correct server names, and reinstall this software.”

The following entry may also be found in the Application Event Log corresponding to this error:

Event ID: 3351
SQL database login failed. Additional error information from SQL Server is included below.
Login failed for user 'domain\userid'.

To fix this ensure that you have logged-on to the server as the SharePoint Farm Administrator before attempting the install.
