VMware vSphere Error: Call “ServiceInstance.RetrieveContent” for object “ServiceInstance” on Server “IP address” failed.

VMware vSphere Error: Call "ServiceInstance.RetrieveContent" for object "ServiceInstance" on Server "IP address" failed.

The (404) Not Found error can be noticed while trying to login vSphere using HTTP protocol instead of HTTPS. Recommend way is to use the vCenter server name or IP address in the IP address / Name field of vSphere client.

I am attaching the error message for reference,
