VRAY HDRI shadows & SUN shadows?

Hi,

I need to use an HDRI vray dome light/ HDRI for color matching and ambient lighting.
I also want to use the Vray Sun. My results are 2 sets of shadows. One from the HDRI and the other from the sun. I have been lining up my hdri to match my sun position so both shadows line up however, I now have 2 shadows on top of each other. I know this is going to be trouble down the production line.

So does anyone know some work arounds when working with sun & Hdri?

Thanks,
Lou

I only ever used vray for a short time but dont lights have an exclusion list? Just exclude one from casting shadows.

Also next time mention what 3d application you are using and post in that forum.
Cheers
