Welcome to openSUSE Factory "Harlequin" - Kernel
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.
