Help--a7r iv not recognizing my Leica M lenses?

Hello all

I just got the camera new from B&H yesterday, with a Fotodiox adapter. The shutter release without lens is enabled, so I can take pictures. But the focusing mode says "MF" and is greyed out. And when I go to the focusing mode display, I get a message: "The lens is not attached correctly or is not supported."

I have tried two lenses--my 21 and 28. And two different adapters--a Fotodiox and a K&F Concept one. Same error in all four possible combinations.

Is that normal?  I am able to take pictures but the error message is unsettling.

Thank you.
