nnmi chooses loopback ip address instead management ip address is available

i see some strange issue in nnmi 10.21, i have added the device with management ip address but after a day when i try to find the ip in nnm inventory the ip address is not resolving. if i try added then i get duplicate seed. when search the host name with sysName then i found the device being monitrored with loopback ip address.

 

i know nnmi uses the choices when the management address is not available it uses loop back but for my case i see the device is resolving for snmp query in management ip  or seeded ip. but it does monitoring through lowest loop back ip address.

without deleting i tried to change ip address in the node form but i did get the ip address is not discovered to change it.

 

any idea how can i advise nnmi to use only the management ip without removing from nnm db.
