To manually accept each candidate system, enable manual accept mode, which is described in the VMware Smart Assurance IP Manager User Guide. In the example that is shown in Filtering with accept mode, routers and switches that match Filter 1 are automatically added to the topology. Hosts, however, that match Filter 2 are automatically added to the Pending Devices list.
