Splunk Search

Can I return the host IP address in WinEventLog metadata search?

I'm trying to use a metadata search to quickly return the hosts that are currently sending logs to Splunk to determine if we are missing any logs. Here is the current search:

| metadata type=hosts index=wineventlog | table host

Is there a way to also return the IP address of the host from the metadata search?

Use this-

| metadata type=hosts index=wineventlog | table host| lookup dnslookup clienthost AS host

Also this documentation will be helpful

I tried this search string, but I got an empty clientip field added to the table...not exactly why it's not returning the IP values. No error is shown...
