Reynolds Number

When solving for a laminar situation with flow around a body (not pipeflow) I keep getting an Error in the Solver Output file stating:

"Error #002100004 has occurred in subroutine Out_Scales_Flu: The Reynolds number is outside of the range expected based on the Option selected for the TURBULENCE MODE."

The velocity should be low enough for spherical bodies, as not to be turbulent. I think CFX is setup for pipe flow Reynolds number transition at >1000 (this value is stated in the Help files). But, I want to use a different Reynolds number, one for a spherical body. Is there a way of changing this, and will the "Error" effect my results (or is it just a by-product of the solution)?

Thanks in advance for any help,
