Default Fan rotor - interface and periodic repeats setup

Hello everyone,

I am struggling a bit with an interface setup for a fan rotor.
I've meshed a single passage and the duct in ICEM, defined periodicity and exported to Fluent. But when I want to set up the interface, the periodic repeats option to rotate the whole 360 degrees won't do the trick, it seems to expect same number of counterparts of the stator. Keeping this option blank makes only that one part of the interface work, the rest behaves as a wall. Is there any way around this apart from meshing the rotor as one piece?
