Default Plzz help: Meshing Manifolds

I am meshing a simple manifold, I created INLETS and OUTLETS parts, with a single material body in the fluid domain. But I created the inlet and outlet seleting Surfaces (Breaking connectivity of the initial TRM_SRFACE) . Now when I change the initial geometry dimensions and then try to remesh the new geometry with the same replay file. The outlet part just wont get created, however INLET does. I am automating the meshing process. And this seems the final hurdle... PLZZ help..

I am using an IGES file to mesh the manifold (created via Surfaces option)

I found a way around the problem, but that too has a misgiving, I now need to create a Replay file .. via a replay file ... Can that be done ?

Yes, you can record the command to save a replay file in the replay file... so no problem... But why?
Please help guide development at ANSYS by filling in these surveys

The reason I needed the replay file to record a replay file is,
the part OUTLETS I created via selection, wouldn't have the same feature names if say I ran the same replay file for a scaled version of the geometry, as I found out. i.e. if say every dimension of the same model were made 6 times (without creating something new in the geometry) I expected ICEM CFD to keep the names of the curves and points same as the previous model, for automation of the MESHING PROCESS.
But Alas ! that wasn't the way icem was working !! And since a replay file can capture all the feature names when I break connectivity of the Surfaces, I can use a bit of programming to extract the names from the replay file... I have done this without using replay files but using the tetin file of the model and it is working perfectly, but a replay file will cut my programming really short.... Please help !!
Summary :
Replay 1 : Model Scale 1
Outlet Selected feature : F_44 (say)
Replay 1 : Model Scale 6 (Dimensions made 6 times the orignal)
Outlet Selected Feature : F_48 (though I did nothing to the geometry, but scaled it, the feature name changed !)

Hello dear friend.
What is RMB and LMB in ICEM? Could you please explain it?
