Default Conjugate Heat Transfer Fluent Mesh Conversion to OpenFOAM

Lancia037 is on a distinguished road

I am currently attempting to convert a Fluent mesh (V19.4) in .msh ASCII format, with an interface wall between fluid and solid domain to OpenFOAM (latest dev version), to simulate conjugate heat transfer.

When I use the fluentMeshToFOAM the code is unable to convert it (although it should be able to), while the fluent3DMeshToFoam successfully produces the polyMesh folder.

Using checkMesh I see that the converted grid's shared internal wall has double the number of nodes and faces but is a single entity. How do I create a shared internal wall setting up the internal mapping between the fluid and solid heat transfer? Do I use createBaffles? I have attempted to but it then creates a huge amount of faces and nodes on the shared surface. I have attempted to split the mesh between solid and fluid regions but then I get no coupling at all.
