Cyclic BC and moving mesh

Can anyone help with cyclic BC???
I am trying to use cyclic BC on inlet and outlet for a case with dynamic mesh (wind over waves). The mesh does not move/change at the outlet and inlet patch and therefore I thought it could be possible to use cyclic conditions. I am running the case for a short time (I use pimpleDyMFoam) and then I am changing the patches to cyclic (by the use of foamUpgradeCyclic). Not sure if this will work but it looks like the syntax is accepted but I get a more fundamental problem about the pressure? I get this error message and it is related to set a reference cell for p.
Anyone know a “work around”?

In your fvSolutions you should find something like:
Apparently at least your entries for pRefCell and pRefValue are missing.
