I was passed this and figured I would pass it on.   Have also forwarded to Support to make into a KB if it's not already there.  Chris   CA Clarity SharePoint  Connector   Installing SPConnector on SharePoint for accessing Clarity PPM data
was an interesting learning experience. I ran into several issues with
the installation and was finally able to resolve it with some manual
steps.
Although the installation document is decent with the instructions,
it does not cover the installation for a multi-server MOSS farm
clearly. For a single server WSS implementations the documented steps
may work fine.
When I ran the installation on the Central Admin Server, I got the
following error (the installation log can be found in the local %temp%
directory)
The EXECUTE permission was denied on the object ‘proc_getNewObjects’, database ‘SharePoint_Config’, schema ‘dbo’.
To resolve this error I had to -

On the DB server, Open the SQL Management Studio
Browse to the database in question, in our case “ ‘SharePoint_Config “
Open the database and then Security > Roles > Database Roles
In the right part of the window, right click the WSS ContentApplication_Pools role and click Properties
Select the menu option “Securables�
Click “Add�
Select “Specific objects� and click “OK�
Click “Object Types�, select “Stored Procedures� and click “OK�
Add the following stored procedures: proc_getNewObjects
Click “OK� to add these stored procedures
Select the added stored procedures and select “Execute� in the “Grant� column.

Upon running the installation again, I got the same error for proc_putObject . Repeated the above steps for the proc_putObject stored procedure and upon re-install, I was able to get the solution installed successfully on the Central Admin Server.
The Next step is to deploy the solution on SharePoint
web-applications. I targeted the solution to specific web-apps that
will be using the CA PPM web-parts.
Once the solution is deployed, the CA PPM web-parts are ready to
use. To help maximize the web-parts effectively, CA has also provided a
sample SharePoint site template (stp file). This file can be uploaded
into the site collections “Site Templatesâ€? gallery for end user use.
