Problems during import of fluent mesh

I'm new in the world of OpenFoam. I simulate with Ansys CFX and Fluent before. I calculate turbomachinerys.
Now, I want to import a mesh from fluent to OpenFoam. All worked fine. But when I checked the Mesh the following error-message turn up:
// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //

What could be a reason? When I run my case with k-epsilon it doesn't work. After 5 timesteps the timestep continuty error is verhy high. But when I try without turbulence model it would be better....
Thanks in advance.

Is it possible, that the problem is because of using different mesh-regions? I use 3 regions. Maybe it doens't worked with multiple regions. So I try to import the regions seperate and then I merge them together?

Nevertheless, in OpenFOAM, when you have multiple regions, you have to use the utility splitMeshRegion to split the mesh into subMeshes and have a 0, constant and system directory for each of the region. Check out chtMultiRegionFoam in the heatTransfer directory for ideas regarding how to set up multi-region simulations in OpenFOAM.
