    Either the server is down, your connection to the server no longer works, or you simply have to try two times. Does the web client still work? – mzhaase Dec 14 '16 at 14:59

    Look at the log files (of both your vsphere client and on the vcenter server) for details on that error. – Gerald Schneider Dec 14 '16 at 15:00

    Could your cloned VM got the IP .17 ? please close the VM and try again. – yagmoth555 Dec 14 '16 at 15:00
  • Connect to each host directly and define whether the vCenter is up and running. If yes, log in to it and double check logs. Try to reboot vCenter. – Mr. Raspberry Dec 14 '16 at 15:07
