Add IP as an option to show on the VM screen.
On the VM list screen I would love it to show the IP addresses of my VMs. This would be very useful as well, so when I search I actually can yield results based on IP address. Sometimes you have a moment and all you have is an IP address for a machine. vCenter does this for its search functionality.
The IP Address and Computer Names columns can be added in the VM list views

I took Trond Hindenes source code and add additional properties as VLAN and VMPath.
It will be nice to add these additional properties for VM to VMM console.
When you have a big number of VMs inside VMM it easy to find VM by IP not by name when you time value inside search box.
Nice thanks Lyndon and Trond for the tools and advice.

IP Addresses are not attributes of VMs but vNICs. You can use the VM Networks view in VMs and Services and click VMs in the Show part of the ribbon in order to present a list of all VMs, their vNICs and corresponding IP addresses in case it belongs to an IP pool.

I would find it also usefull to be able to set the IP address on a VM network interface.

Adam, I actually ended up writing a VMM add-in to address this (and other) shortcomings. Have a look at: https://github.com/trondhindenes/vmm-extensions
