Hi, we are going to clone some machines, those machines have installed some Autodesk products. What should I do before create the clonation? Is there any thing that I have to do before and after the clonation?

This will work far better with network licenses than stand-alone.  In fact, with a multi-seat stand-alone license it becomes very easy to overrun your allotment of licenses.

 

And while cloning can work, I'd recommend investigating SCCM or other deployment tools to push packages out to users.  This is superior from a software management perspective.

If it is stand-alone, it will probably break as the licensing cannot be cloned.  Network licensed installs clone perfectly.  If you are doing stand-alone, either don't... or install unactivated.  You might be able to activate after the clone.  But it's still a stretch.
