I have a weird issue, and I think I know why, but I just want to get some confirmation about the issue. We recently had quite a few computers imaged and installed about a month ago. I have a program that allows me to manage these machines remotely. Now here is where it is strange. All the computers have a different name, but 4 computers that I looked at were showing they were powered on. When I looked to see who was logged in on those computers, it was the same user. The user was not logged onto the other machines, the user was logged on to their own computer. It was like the other 3 machines although named differently, were taking over his settings. I'm not sure if I am right, but could this be because the imaged computers were either not sysprep'd or were done incorrectly and these machines machine id is duplicated to all the systems?

Thank you!
