SharePoint_AdminContent not found - SQL login failed

Hey Guys,

I've a weird error message on my SP2010 environment.
I've recently scaled up the farm and added a new server to act as crawler.
On that new server only I'm getting the following error message :

A critical incident has occurred where a database was not found on server Event ID: 3760 Event Description: SQL Database 'SharePoint_AdminContent_0708d5a6-6b8d-41a3-b8e8-cf120ede1111' on SQL Server instance 'SHAREPOINT' not found.
 Additional error information from SQL Server is included below. Cannot open database "SharePoint_AdminContent_0708d5a6-6b8d-41a3-b8e8-cf120ede1111" requested by the login. The login failed. Login failed for user 'DOMAIN\MyNewServer$'.

I was just wondering why would thi account need access to the SharePoint admin Content DB.
It's not running the CA role anyway.

Any idea?

looks like the farm was built as a single server... which means local system accounts, not domain service accounts... assuming that's the case, you'll need to change/fix all of that before things start to work (not just the CA content database)
