Environment

NetIQ Group Policy Administrator 5.0
NetIQ Group Policy Administrator 5.0 SP1

Resolution

symptom
Error installing Group Policy Administrator on SQL 2005 Enterprise Edition.
Error installing Group Policy Administrator on SQL 2000 SP4 Enterprise Edition.

symptom
"To complete this installation you must be a member of the SQL Server Sysadmin role.  Please add your user account to the Sysadmin role and then continue with the installation.  Alternatively, log on to this computer with a user account that is a member of the Sysadmin role to perform the installation."

cause
The issue is not the SQL 2000/2005 'Sysadmin Role', but the named pipes. By default named pipes is disabled in SQL 2005.  Also, the GPA console must use the default instance for SQL, not a named instance.  This error can also occur if a named instance is being used where the GPA Console is being installed. 

fix
Enable Named Pipes and make sure to use the default instance in SQL.
