"The request failed because the remote server “Vcenter name / ip” took too long to respond. (The command has timed out as the remote server is taking too long to respond) OR "{Connection Time-out while waiting in the queue}"

>how to identify if db for vc is corrupted any symptoms,logs we have to search, where to diagnose if db is corrupted?
