Yes, It's possible , In Dev You should use the SPfarm and site admin of the current environment, no need to the same account at production.

In the Development server I can't find Production Farm Administrator and site admin

No need to use the same production service accounts, you should use the corresponding service accounts in Dev environment.

Steps

I did the following steps to migrate a content database from one environment to another that worked successfully .

Dismount-SPContentDatabase "<ContentdBName>"

  • In Dev, via SQL Management Studio , Restore the content database.
  • In Dev, Mount it to the created web application,

Mount-SPContentDatabase "<ContentDb>" -DatabaseServer "<DbServer>" -WebApplication http://SiteName

  • In Dev, Change Site collection administrator for the web application to avoid the access permission issue. by going to site Setting > Site Collection Administrator > Set the site admin account in Dev.

For more details check Restore / Migrate a SharePoint Web Application to another farm from SQL Database Backup

  • I am getting technical error while loading the page And while checking the files I found "UserAgent not available, file operations may not be optimized". I already update site collection admin and clear blob cache. Any Idea why I am getting this error? – akj Oct 12 '16 at 11:02
