Try doing it as CC instead.

Two other thoughts:  
(1) Rather than doing it by hand, why not just re-upload the class list with 
the new IDs, but into the actual running class.  Just make sure to disable 
the ID check.  
(2) Why get carried away with changing the ID# in the running course in the 
first place?  The University appears to have provided you with some kind of 
mapping.  If you need the new IDs to do upload grades or something at the end 
of the semester, get the spreadsheet or CSV file output from LON-CAPA at that 
time, and do the mapping on the output at the end of the semester.  Just make 
sure that for any new classes you use the new IDs.
