IP addresses of VMKernels in ESX hosts.

I have 2 ESX hosts :
I configured on ESX1  VM Network Port Group and Vmkenels (Vmotion,Management,ISCSI-A,ISCSI-B)
On ESX2 I configured only the Vmkernel Management.

Now I created Host Profile for ESX1 and replicated it to ESX2. What I noticed that the IP addresses stayed the same for
Vmkenels (Vmotion,ISCSI-A,ISCSI-B)

Except for Management vmkernel which was already different before replicating Host Profile.

Well, my question is can we have 2 ESX hosts with  VMkernels (Vmkenels (Vmotion,ISCSI-A,ISCSI-B) have the same IP addresses ?

both ESX hosts are in the same Cluster
