lost.identity is on a distinguished road

When I try to convert my mesh to a Multiblock mesh it prompts me with this message.

Convert which kind of domains?
And it gives two options, either Volume or Surface.

What do I select?

Many thanks.

It depends on your solver... (ICEM CFD supports a lot of solvers)

Some users just want the surface blocks, this option gives them the faces of the volume blocks as surface blocks.

If you want the volume blocks (which also have faces), pick volume.

I am guessing you want volume
