As long as its connected to vCenter you can see all the statistics of the HOST + IP.  Also depends on where you want to see the IP address.  If you add the HOST via IP then thats what the hosts name will be, otherwise if you join it via DNS name (which I advise) you will just have to click on the host and see the overview

Can you detail exactly where in vcenter this can be seen (new to vcenter).

If you have added ESXi/ESX hosts to vCenter Server correctly they are added by FQDN. (not IP Address).

To check the IP Address of the Hosts, either view the ESXi Server Console where it's displayed.

or select Host > Configuration > Networking > Properties of the Management Network.

IP-Address
if you select Properties, if will confirm the IP Address settings of the Host

@PMA111, the Answer you have selected states the IP Address is shown in the OVERVIEW?

What overview?

If you have correctly added the Server via FQDN (not IP Address as advised), it's only visible as per my correct post!

When you log into vCenter via the client or Web Interface the IP of each host will be listed on the Summary page of each host.
