These are some older posts below, but they may help. Also, check the permissions of the account used to connect to vCenter, as that could be an issue too.

Instead of seeking a solution to the technical problem on forums, I strongly recommend contacting our support team. Also, please keep in mind that it's required to provide a case ID when you create a new topic about a technical issue. As explained in this post, we cannot troubleshoot technical issues effectively over the forum posts. All posts about technical issues without case ID will be eventually deleted by the forum moderator.
