VMware login and connection issue

Last Modified: 2020-02-17

I can no longer access my VMware vcenter inventory. When I log into the web client, I see this message:

Could not connect to one or more vCenter Server systems:
https://server name:443/sdk

If I try to connect using the vSphere client I get the attached message.

I can login to the Microsoft Server with the vcenter server, and I can SSH to alle the ESXi servers but not the vSphere server.

I'm running an older VMware version 5.1.0 Build 1115182.

How can I fix this?
