cvetkovc is on a distinguished road

My geometry incorporates a solid portion encased in another solid portion with a fluid tube in the centre. I set up this model in the design modeler and then after meshing the structure FLUENT I only get one solid in the cell zone boundaries section (the fluid) and I get:
Note: zone-surface: cannot create surface from sliding interface zone.
Creating empty surface.

I believe the problem lies in the meshing component. Has anyone here run into something similar or do any of you have any ideas?
