    Check your network connections between your machine and the vCenter server.

    if you connect back to vCenter Server does it connect?

    you may want to use ping <ip address> of the vCenter server and see if it responds or requests time out.

    by:piyushranusri your vc center is on Vm ?
    if yes, login to host and then check network configuration.

    2.this issue comes from dedicated machine or every machine ?

    it's a vm and it's a VCSA (vCENTER SERVER APPLIANCE) I always use IP.
    I can still ping the vm while I see the screenshot. And come back after a while.

    I was still able to access all other vms at the time

    It's probably a bug in the vCenter Virtual Appliance, which is not reliable.
