Migrating from JIRA Cloud to Server

We are trying to migrate users and data from Jira Cloud to Server and have been running into issues where the admin accounts get wiped out and we are not able to login to the server after the import.

Is there something we are missing?  Are there documented steps on how to do the migration from cloud to server?

Are you doing a full system restore or trying to migrate projects from cloud to server.

Have you gone through this guide?
