Just a hint,

 

I had the same problem/issue as you and I got another hint. I tried almost everything that made sense.

 

After a while a colluge saide, try https://hostname:443 (No FQDN!) and use in your browser explicit (No Proxy!).

 

Believe me, after 17 years of using and administrating VMware, my face must looked like a donkey seeing a UFO! But, it worked!

You also need to have proper name resolution. The ESXi hosts should be resolvable from you box where you run browser under names exactly as visible in vcenter.

Thank you because I spent hours trying to get this to work.

Resolved by using hostname:443 for whatever reason it worked.
