Hmm...  Did you completely DELETE the %TEMP%\AFSCache file before 
cloning the system?  This is specifically mentioned in the release notes 
and weird things happen if you have multiple systems based off of the 
same image.  The AFS uuid is stored in the cache file and multiple 
machines can look like the same client if these are not unique.

Sysprep by itself does not take care of duplicate UUIDs.  You need to 
delete the AFSCache file.

Or run fs uuid -generate
