Just started lnd for the first time connected to a bitcoind node. Do
lncli getinfo and this is the error message. How can I get past this?
EDIT: Would like to add that I'm using lnd on testnet, however lncli is looking in the mainnet folder

Found the issue, lncli needed to be set to testnet and you need to create a wallet as well
lncli --network=testnet create lncli --network=testnet getinfo
After installation of the lnd for the first time you should initialize a wallet with a command:
Here is description of startup commands:
lncli help ... Startup: create Initialize a wallet when starting lnd for the first time. unlock Unlock an encrypted wallet at startup. changepassword Change an encrypted wallet's password at startup.
It may require you to create the path:
mkdir -p <path from error message>
