Works for me. Can you check whether the host’s config file was created?:

acheron:icinga2 gunnar$ ls -l ../i2/var/lib/icinga2/api/packages/_api/acheron-1445924979-1/conf.d/hosts/
total 8
-rw-r--r--  1 gunnar  staff  110 Nov 15 09:53 10.102.58.77.conf
acheron:icinga2 gunnar$ cat ../i2/var/lib/icinga2/api/packages/_api/acheron-1445924979-1/conf.d/hosts/10.102.58.77.conf
object Host "10.102.58.77" {
import "generic-host"


address = "10.102.58.77"
version = 1447577614.982893
}
acheron:icinga2 gunnar$
