database cloning and post-cloning configuration steps for WMX

We have a fully functioning production WMX geodatabase, however we would like to use database cloning on a weekly basis to create a QA version of this environment for testing, development and training purposes.

What are the necessary steps we need to run after the database clone to ensure that the QA version and supporting documents are properly configured to work independently of production? We have heard that the same mxds can be used in both production and QA, and will automatically change the database connection depending on the established default geodatabase. However we are having trouble making this work.

Appreciated any pointers you might have.
