If you have followed the steps in the section above, OpenLM Broker should now be transmitting data to OpenLM Server. The final step is to approve the configuration in EasyAdmin User Interface:

- In the License Servers window, click on the There are Servers Pending Approval icon.
- Double-click on the pending license manager. Note it is displayed as OpenLM Generic. Verify the configurations and click APPROVE.
