Common issue here, that initially I see the boot process of the newly deployed operating system through the console, serial console in case of ARM board, or 'virtual' text tty console in case of virtual machine manager.
It usually ends up with the things kind of the following:
Starting Network Manager Script Dispatcher Service... [ OK ] Started Network Manager Script Dispatcher Service. [ OK ] Started X Display Manager. [ OK ] Created slice user-490.slice. Starting User Manager for UID 490...
Welcome to openSUSE Factory "Harlequin" - Kernel 3.18.0-rc6-5-default (ttyO0).
The local login message comes from "/etc/issue", and the remote one comes from "/etc/issue.net", but you don't see it via ssh. Of course, it is documented in "man issue". You could have a job in "/etc/init.d/after.local" so that it modifies the welcome message, adding the IP address, if after reading the documentation you don't find a variable that contains it.
My solution is different: I use vmplayer, and I modify its dhcpd configuration so that the same fixed IP is assigned to each virtual machine. Huh, I mean, a different but fixed IP for each. Each upgrade of vmware undoes it, but it is easy to reapply.
I can explain more if you wish to go that road.
Having a fixed IP allows you to configure names in the DNS server.
Another method would be to disable somehow the internal dhcp server in vmware, and instead use dnsmasq to serve dhcp in combination with names. This would be easier to configure, IF somebody knows how to disable vmware dhcp.
