XF 1.2 Importing from MyBB 1.6.9

    I'm testing a MyBB import. When I clicked to complete the forum/node portion of the import process, I got the following error message:

    I've tried dropping the XF node table and I've made sure there are not two entries in the source db with FID=7
    Can someone help me understand exactly what's going on here and how I might fix it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Is this a second import? Have you chose to retain IDs?

    First import though there was existing data from test nodes/threads/posts/members
    I believe I did choose to retain IDs

    If you are choosing to retain IDs, you cannot have any data within the data based tables (such as nodes).

    So what is the best course of action for a re-test? Is there an easy way to remove all data from the database? Can I just re-try and NOT select Retain IDs?

    Are these just test imports? If so, just reinstall XenForo and delete the nodes.
