3. In the 'Register BPT tab', browse for a table or enter a table name. 
4. In the 'Choose ALM Object' window, enter in a URL and Hostname. 
5. Click the green check mark in the bottom right hand corner. 
Actual Result: After entering credentials and server name, we get the error message: Start session failed.
