Inventory Service will not start

I am working on a vCenter Server Appliance 6.0. There were a few things going on... Multiple folders at 100% usage. I cleaned up a lot of the logs and inched my way forward getting more and more services to start. I think my last hurdle is the Inventory Service. I cleaned up all the logs I think and performed a reset of the inventory DB using the "create-db.sh" script, but still get an error. See attached file. Anyone have any ideas what I can try next?

The document says to SSH into the Platform Services Controller first then the vCenter Server Appliance. Since I am using embedded would they then be one and the same? or do I need to connect through a different port?
