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?

yes it is same. You have PSC and vCenter services on same machine so no worries. Its port 22 for ssh

Thank you Murali.. that was the final task to get vCenter back on line... funny thing I saw that article and dismissed it thinking it didn't pertain to what was happening...
