LOSING WIDGET SETTINGS after cloning site

We recently launched our first Wordpress site on Amazon Web Services. We created a copy of the admin site to create a TEST site to play around in. When we were done cloning the environment to the Test environment we noticed on a number of the web pages various widgets were displaying.

We found that all the Widgets are in the test environment but for some reason we lost the setting to the Primary and Secondary sections. Can someone explain how this is happening and what we need to do to correct this for the future.

Thanks so much!
