Unable to restore configuration for FortiClient on macOS Big Sur

I'm trying to restore my configuration for FortiClient on macOS Big Sur but I'm having no luck doing that. Once I click on restore and then ok the app hangs and stops responding until restarted. Once restarted the new configuration isn't loaded.
I also tried using fcconfig command line utility as mentioned in https://docs.fortinet.com/document/forticlient/6.4.3/xml-reference-guide/10217/backing-up-and-restoring-cli-utility-commands-and-syntax#Backing_up_and_restoring_CLI_utility_commands_and_syntax
and it's returning an error saying
invalid option -- i
If I don't use the -i 1 option I get this error upon restoring:
failed to attain lock
 
Can anyone please help me with this. I'll be grateful for any advice!

Same here. It hangs eternally even full disk access permission has been granted.

Same here. The OP usage of the command is not correct though.
 
The correct is: sudo /Library/Application\ Support/Fortinet/FortiClient/bin/fcconfig -m all -f <filename.conf> -o import -d
 
But even with that, the command hangs and stops responding until restarted...
