Problem writing to file geodatabase other than default.gdb

I have a script that selects parcels within a boundary and then runs a dissolve on those parcels. I have a file geodatabase that I want to use for the output. If I have my workspace set to my default.gdb, everything works great. When I change my workspace to a different file geodatabase, I get "ExecuteError: ERROR 000210: Cannot create output" and the dissolve fails to execute. When I look into the file geodatabase, the new feature class is created but it is empty.

Are there permissions or environment variables that need to be set so that I can write to a different FGDB?

what am I doing wrong?
