vSphere: Host to find a host by IP address?

If you have a vSphere with hundreds of servers configured - how do you find one when you only know the IP address and it's not in DNS? If I go to Virtual machines and type in the IP in Search of Find that does not work.??

Assuming you're using the vSphere Client, have you add the IP Address column on the virtual machine tab?

Another way is just run the following command from PowerCLI: Get-VM | Where-Object -FilterScript { $_.Guest.Nics.IPAddress -contains "10.85.134.137" }

Replace 10.85.134.137 with IP of virtual machine that you want to find, but take in mind that virtual machine must have VMware Tools installed and running to vCenter be able to detect the virtual machine IP address.

Here is the example:
