I was able to solve this issue by going into the xtract VM and adding the vsphere IP addresses to the host file and then refreshing in xtract.
The file is located in /etc/hosts so to edit it you could do
sudo vim /etc/hosts
Then enter the following
188.8.131.52 . vspherehost.domain.local
Hope that helps!
