Do you have "Use LoopBack Address" checked under CM -> Admin -> Device Discovery -> Discovery Settings -> Preferred Management IP? If so, uncheck that and look again after the next discovery cycle.

it is exactly what yjdabear wrote

and for devices being already discoverd you could change the Management IP in Campus Manager - Topology Services. Open a Network View, highlight a device and use the advanced menu (right mouse click) and go to 'Change Management IP...'
