How to Copy a windows 2016 server on a VMware VSphere 6.0


We use VMware Vsphere 6.0 and I have a Windows 2016 template server which is in a powered off state. At the moment I want to copy this server and build for the purpose of new role and would like to keep the master copy Windows 2016 template server.
If I copy the 2016 template server, will the copied sever have a separate MAC address?

Please post me the steps and best way to achieve this.

Create a Template. (if you have a vSphere Template)

Right Click your Master and Click CLONE to Template, and then Deploy from Template.

The new server will have a new MAC Address.
