Product Replication from CRM OP to C4C

Hello gurus

We are in process of enabling integration between C4C and CRM OP for products and per the guides I set up the product categories in C4C and also the Mapping Id related changes. I then ran the report in CRM OP to prepare the IDOCs. These processed through HCI just fine but when it reaches C4C, it errors out with text 'Activation not permitted; cross-process category missing'. I then researched and found out that I need this if CRM OP products have sales area data. Now I tried to delete the C4C product category so I could enable the hierarchy but system wont let me do it even though no product is created in C4C. SAP Support feedback is that product category is consumed by a custom BO so cant be deleted.

Now we are in a limbo, I cant delete a category nor can I create a new node, so how do I get around this so sales area data can come over to C4C.

I wish the documentation was clear in this critical area.

To test if I can send CRM OP Product basic data over to C4C, I created a sub category under the main one (that was failing above for products with sales data), then I created a product in CRM with only basic data. That came over to C4C just fine.

Thoughts and workarounds appreciated.
