Default Working with FLUENT outside of Workbench

I have .agdb file for geometry, .meshdat and .msh for the mesh, and .cas for FLUENT setup. Workbench keeps bugging out on zero thickness surfaces, so I copied all these files into another directory. Modified the geometry.

1. How do I automatically update the mesh and setup from there automatically without opening each component by hand?

2. Manually updated the mesh. Opened FLUENT case. How do I import the mesh to replace the current mesh (not to have two meshes)? Update, found "/mesh/replace" in this thread, it seems to work.

2. Or you can do File->Read->Mesh and select Replace Mesh.
