So you are trying to do a traceflow to see where the traffic is going, but as it turns out it is not working. If this is the case, and if you are running NSX-T 3.2, and the segment that your VMs belong to is VLAN backed. Then I might have a solutions for you.
Traceflow request failed. The request might be cancelled because it took more time than normal. Please retry.Error Message: Error: Traceflow intent /infra/traceflows/<guid> realized on enforcement point /infra/sites/default/enforcement-points/default with error Traceflow on VLAN logical port LogicalPort/<guid> requires INT (In-band Network Telemetry) to be enabled (Error code: 500060)
I recently installed Powershell Core om Ubuntu 18.04, and after installing the PowerCLI module. I ran into an error.
The error is not an uncommon one, but on Windows the error message makes a lot more sense, so I just wanted to let you know what this error actually means.
The error you might get when you try to connect to your vCenter server using the connect-viserver is the following:
Connect-VIServer : 9/27/18 10:41:37 AM Connect-VIServer The SSL connection could not be established, see inner exception.
At line:1 char:1
+ Connect-VIServer <servername>
+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Connect-VIServer], ViError
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : Client20_ConnectivityServiceImpl_Reconnect_SoapException,VMware.VimAutomation.ViCore.Cmdlets.Commands.ConnectVIServer
The only hint here is “The SSL connection could not be established…”
This actually means that you do not have a valid certificate. And if you want to connect to vCenter without a valid certificate, you have to allow this.
You can either change you vCenter certificate to a trusted one, which is the correct solutions or you can ignore invalid certificates, which circumvents all security, but makes it work right now.

All credits go to Justin Ellingwood. There is a link to his article at the bottom of this page. This is just a quick summery of what needs to be done to get SSL working, based on his article.
I do not recommend using self-signed certificates in production, as it does not provide any security what so ever! Deploy a signed certificate from your internal 2-Tier PKI infrastructure. If you do not have an internal PKI infrastructure, your need to get one!
