Remove admin tools and server manager from published desktop

PVS 6.1 “The database login failed. The user has no database access rights.”

After installing PVS 6.1 and attempting to access the PVS console I got this error message:
“The database login failed. The user has no database access rights.” It also contained the domain name and the computer account of the PVS server. On further investigation the computer account was not a DBO on PVS database on the SQL server, nor could i add the account via the new login interface as computer accounts were not available to chose from, only users.
Sorted out by running this on the SQL 2008 R2 database:
CREATE LOGIN [DOMAIN_NAME\LOGINNAME] FROM WINDOWS;
Then added the account to the DBO group on the database.
Login to console then worked.
