This is a UI error, and is really nothing to worry about. We will fix
it in the next version by using a UserTag to read the status file.

You can eliminate the error with this patch to lib/UI/pages/genconfig.html

diff -r1.17 genconfig.html
<       <TD>[file name=`"$Config->{ConfDir}/status.$Config->{CatalogName}"`] ([page __UI_BASE__/reconfig @@MV_PAGE@@]apply now</A>)</TD>
>       <TD>[file name=`"etc/status.$Config->{CatalogName}"`] ([page __UI_BASE__/reconfig @@MV_PAGE@@]apply now</A>)</TD>
