Make sure that your render settings are set to Scene only. Although you can mix HDRi with these lights, for this purpose, you want it off. Click on Dome setting.
If you do these things you should get exactly the same results. (Shaders apart)
I’ve made a simple addon to Daz to give you the exact same lighting that you can see in the picture.
There are 13 lights in this setup, but in the image only one is on at a time. Each gives a different effect and all have their place. Some look better with a second light to add depth, but, for example, when I shoot nudes in studio I’ll often use a side light only or single front light. Most of these are pretty flattering to a model – you will have your own preference, but load a model up and just try a few renders with different lights on and off.
Play with it and find what works for you.
Most of the Promos in the figures below werer done using these lights.

FINALLY, a light set up that works for simple scenes. I well and truly appreciate this because getting lights to work as intended in Iray has been a pain in the ass
