Handling license keys in V9 VM cloning

We have a V9 (patch 01) core in a lab to trial the new VM cloning feature, released in V9. This core is linked to Virtual Centre 4. During the cloning sequence the SA client insists that we supply a  software key, in our case we are testing a Windows 2003 server clone. When we supply a dummy key or leave the field blank it fails the clone.

We are looking for a solution that handles license keys in a similar way to OS provisioning, that is we don't need to provide a license key & when the build is complete we provide the key.

Has anybody cloned Windows servers in SA 9 & had issues with this mandatory license key field in the SA client? Alan
