There are a lot of reasons you can get that error.  Best to go to VMware (kb.vmware.com) and do a search.  You'll have lots of hits and just need to go through and try some fixes.  I usually first try a different remote desktop and connect to the vCenter or sometimes the host directly.

Yeah it’s a generic error so troubleshooting is a real pain. Again if you can try a bunch of different hosts from which to connect– like a VM running on the same ESXi host.
