Can you post a screenshot of the problem and the type of switch it is? Also try running a data collection again.

If you need immediate assistance's, you are encouraged to open a TAC case as I'm off on the weekends.  For the devices indicating they are POE switches, can you post the show ver of each one?

Its hard to tell without getting the info requested but check the DCR to see how its identified as which device type it is. And compare that to the inventory hardware report and the actual device itself. 

1. Check the DCR to verify the correct device type is defined for the incorrectly reported devices.

2. Were the devices automatically discovered or added manually to LMS?

3. Re-run a a data collection:


Post the ani.log and the show ver requested after data collection completes.
