comment Backup VHD: risks?
At any rate cloning and not running sysprep will still leave you with duplicate SIDs which will cause the "interesting" issues, Apache, PHP, mysql probably won't care, IIS, Exchange and MSSQL may very well not function as intended. If you need to clone it's for a reason and you probably have a software support contract somewhere you'll violate so why not do it properly with remote install services and WSUS and just do an end run around the whole issue, esp given your image will be "unpatched" this time next week?

comment Backup VHD: risks?
More an issue of just say your VHD contains a machine named A, which is joined to the domain. You now clone it and have two machines named A both "joined" to the domain. The machine account is going to get confused, as will things like WSUS or possibly group policy. The machines will also complain regularly about duplicate names on the network and you will have issues addressing them outside of the IP address. Doubt it will even work for that long. If none of thats important why join it to the domain? Short version; unjoin it from domain then clone, then rename, then join.

comment Multihomed Windows routing issue
Routing is enabled on the Cisco ASA and it handles passing traffic between the sites. I'm not trying to enable forwarding or routing on the Windows box at all. I'm trying to have windows respond to traffic on the interface it received it from, so if I ping 192.168.1.140 on interface A my reply should come from A not B which it currently is. The IP addresses can not be changed and merging the subnets unfortunately isn't feasible either.

@Chris S, the Cisco is handling the routing between the subnets, I've edited that into the question

@Hyppy, included and the topology is very simple, safe to assume any/any permit IP rules between each subnet.
