VSC 6.2 Powershell new-vscclone timeout


In a very large vCenter environment the new-vscclone operation returns a timeout after 5 minutes. When cloning through the GUI it takes appoximately 15 minutes for the wizard to load. The error message is:


new-vscclone : The request channel timed out while waiting for a reply after 00:04:59.9599977. Increase the timeout value passed to the call to Request or increase the 
SendTimeout value on the Binding. The time allotted to this operation may have been a portion of a longer timeout.
