Hello Kang -

Thanks for your interest in the tests.

The BVTs were written for live deployments. In this case the test is
attempting to login to the SSVM and verify if the agent process
inside it is functioning correctly. Since the simulator environment is
entirely mock objects this check will fail.

To have the BVT functioning for the simulator we have to strip it off
of these kind of verifications. There are two ways to do this:

1> Prepare an alternate BVT set without the backend checks
2> Use the existing BVT and alter the test framework to skip backend
checks for the simulated environment.

1> is easier to do, but will cause code duplication. 

For 2> I'm not sure how to get that going. The test code right now is
free to use any library to perform these kind of backend checks. So it
would be harder to have these tests skipped with a simple framework

I'm open to any ideas that may help us port these tests quickly for
the simulator.
