View Desktop Pools - Multiple Network Labels - Pool enabled but new VMs not getting label

In View 5.2 and above we have the option to assign network labels to a Desktop Pool, allowing for a single parentvm that is then assigned to the correct vLan/s based on the pool it is provisioned under. I've followed all of the steps here (VMware View 5.2 Documentation Library) and my test pool shows the correct value for the 'NetworkLabelSpecs' property. However, when I provision a new VM in that pool, it is not being assigned to the correct network label and when I get properties of the new VM its 'NetLabelAutoAssigns' property is listed as 'disabled'.

Has anyone seen this? Do I need to make a change to the parent VM for the newly provisioned VMs to receive the correct assignments?

Any help would be great.

Were these desktops in the pool provisioned new or were they refreshed?     Just wondering if a brand new machine would have the enabled flag.

They are newly provisioned systems. I've also removed the template I was using and re-added it. These are full clones.
