It looks like the same device is being discovered more than once by multiple datasources, hence leading to the error messages.
This is most likely due to the configuration setting “Discover all Fabric switches”. You can either create one datasource for each FC switch or you can configure one datasource per Fabric (and then turn on the Discover all Fabric switches feature). If you have done the former and have this setting enabled, you may run into this issue.
If this is the case, you may want to “Edit” the corresponding datasource and uncheck the “Discover all Fabric switches” checkbox and see the issue status. Once the datasource is automatically reconfigured after the change, the message should ideally disappear.

The following error message in Red on your data source report is displayed:

All models using SNMP
Inventory Package has reported conflicting device(s)
Multiple collections cause undue CPU and memory cycles on both the OCI server and the device itself.
We have one or more Data sources collecting on the same device or devices.
The latency and slow device is caused by response by these unnecessary duplication of effort.
Duplicates have also been known to cause DWH ETL failure as well and in older version's of OCI DB corruption.
Determine which other Data Sources are collecting on the same device and use the exclusion feature within the Data Source configuration to correct the multiple collections.
