Problems connecting Nimble to vCenter

I'm running into problems getting one of my Nimbles (CS300, version 5.0.10.0) connected to vCenter (version 7.0 U1c). When I attempt to connect it to vCenter (using the 'administrator@vmware.local' account) I get the following error:

"Check the vcenter hostname/port number or network connectivity"

I'm able to ping the vCenter from the Nimble and vice versa. Per this integration guide, I've confirmed that vCenter can talk to the Nimble on TCP ports 443 and 8443. However, I've been unable to confirm that the Nimble can talk to vCenter on port 443 because I can't find a command in the Nimble CLI to do that and I haven't been able to find anything online that tells you how to do that.

So, does anyone know how to test that connectivity from the Nimble side? And more generally, can anyone offer any advice on how to resolve this problem?

Thanks!

Your Nimble OS needs to be higher than 5.1.4.200 to work with vCenter 7.0+

Naturally, I didn't think to check that. Grrr!
