ESXi 5.0 A specified parameter was not correct. licenseKey

Issue:- Unable to add the ESXi 5 host to vCenter 5 since while adding license it gives the error
"A specified parameter was not correct. licenseKey"
If you add the host without the license and then add the license, it gives the same error.

If the above didnt help then please Upgrade the vcenter server to the latest version since it contains a patch to fix the same.
