The duplicate DUID is a potential issue for anyone that is using any form of cloning to create system images, the resolution is in fact quite simple and our imaging team along with others have using it for quite sometime now.

Assuming we are dealing with Windows computers, delete the DUID from the registry on the master image before cloning it. The first time the cloned image boots, a new unique DUID is generated.
