Unable to Create a Search Managed Property

While i was trying to create a new Search Managed Property against a crawled property using either PowerShell or UI I am gettin an error "There was an internal problem connecting to or querying the database".

I spent enough time in figuring out the problem. At last I have identified that the Search Service Application doesn't have a valid Administrator who has access to SSA database.
Note: The mappings will be created in DB MSSManagedProperties table.

Administrator can be added by going to Central Administration --> Manage Service Applications --> Select Search Service Application --> Click on Administrators (Ribbon) --> Add an user with Full control (who has proper privileges to DB).

This process will provide the needful privileges to SSA to add the new search managed properties.
