Yes, this runs sysprep, with windows 2008 and 2012 it's part of the OS unlike Windows 2000 and 2003.

so do i have to run sysprep inside widows OS as well  (Sysprep .exe /Generalize)  or it is ok not to do that and let the customization wizard of Vmware does it for us.

You do not, as part of the template deployment VMware will do this for you
