VMWare VM and SysPrep

There are multiple VMs running in VMWare ESXi 4.0 and a new VM needs be created with Windows 2003 R2 SP2.
Instead of creating a new .vmdk, I want to use a template .vmdk file with the same OS that I saved earlier.
Do I have to run SysPrep to avoid duplicate SIPs?

Thank you for your help.
