ArcGIS Pro CreateEnterpriseGeodatabase Invalid License File

Hello, I just purchased an ArcGIS Pro license and am trying to get my ArcMap to talk to a PostgreSQL / PostGIS backend.  I am running my 'Create a geodatabase' step (Create a geodatabase in PostgreSQL on Linux—Manage geodatabases in PostgreSQL | ArcGIS Desktop ) w/ python because the GUI didn't give me any debugging info.

My DB is accessible via a localhost:5432 tunnel, and that seems to be fine.

I believe I am providing all the correct params, but there appears to be a problem w/ my license file.  I'm pretty sure w/ my ArcGIS Pro personal license I'm entitled to all the goodies.  Any thoughts?

Sorry, I thought this forum would be a little more image in-line forthcoming.

Took the liberty of forwarding your question to the Geodatabase and ArcGIS Pro places in GeoNet, where you might receive an answer quicker than in this group, which is very specific to Ocean Sciences. I've asked those other groups to get back to you directly.

I am fairly sure that you must have ArcGIS Enterprise licence to create and Enterprise Geodatabase (EGDB), of any flavor.

Having Pro just gets you the UI to create the EGDB not license it.

-Have you authorized an ArcGIS Enterprise (Windows and/or Linux) site yet?
