I was login as admin user. I didn't get a chance to grep the evm.log file. But it works after I rebooted the appliance from appliance_console.
See the screenshot below, "Task name" with host name got snipped.
I will build another POC using newer version appliance. Version euwe-2.20170404101226_e286988 doesn't have provider plugin for Lenovo xclarity.
This thread should be closed on the matter of original subject.
Again thanks for @Mike_Hulsman's help to newbie like me.
