    Hi everyone,

    New install on a new vmware VM, running v3.2.14
    I've just restored a config from a v2.6.30 machine, but now all I see is 'LiquidFiles system initialising'
    If I select option 9 in the setup menu I get the below error (attached), can anyone shed some light?
    Edit: See Davids response below, the problem was with me not RTFMing

    If i sum up for other potential readers with what we ended up on the support desk with this case.
    When the "ft restore_v2" tool is started please ensure you are attaching the full backup file (liquidfiles-hostname.tgz).
    The restore will Fail with the small config only backup file (liquidfiles-hostname-version-config.tgz).

    If by chance your LF server is configured to make periodically only configuration backups, then you can change temporarily to the full backup (data and configuration) profile in "Admin > System > Backup".
    In the console then run a full backup manually right away by typing "ft backup".

    Cheers David,

    Everythings now up and running smoothly, the config took effect with no issues. Appreciate your help.
