Frequent alerts after change of SNMP configuration


We have moved to new NMS server and had to change the SNMP host in all the switches to the new server ip address. After successfully changing, I am getting 3 of these below alerts very frequently at my system. At System Settings -> Interface Up & Down alarms -> Server Connected Links -> Not Filtered since we want to monitor uplinks and downlinks of all the devices. What could be the issue casuing this after the change in SNMP?
