    Export Jive content DB to local Jive 7 instance


      Hello All!


      I have a vanilla instance of Jive 7.0.3 running on my local Windows 10 machine(Same Jive version as our PROD and test instances).

      I tried downloading our Jive PROD DB from Jive Cloud admin and importing that postgres db to use for my local instance. I had this working on my last laptop but since I have a new one Ive been unable to get my local jive instance to work with our PROD database. So i can only run my local site without content.


      The error I get is that on selecting the -eae database on the intiial JIVE site setup, I get a pop up box that just says "Error"


      This -eae db is blank. if i run the setup with a blank content DB then it lets me use this -eae database with no issues. But the minute I switch out the content DB for the PROD or even Test Jive content DB that has content, I get an error at this step.


      If i enter the wrong credentials then I get a concrete error message saying pwd authentication failed for this user. So Ive ruled out incorrect credentials.


      I do see this in the sbs.log when the error pop up shows up:

      Any ideas where I can look for more information?
