You will notice this error  “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), ” while checking the storage view of a VM or DataCenter.

To solve this, Just type your credentials manually in the vsphere client and login as the “Use Windows Session Credentials” doesn’t work always with SSO.

Thereby be sure to follow http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2035510 when adding external domains. After that, add the trusted domains to the default domains and reorder the domains to suit your needs and save it.
