Field type (Mapping) conflicts

I got this error message:

4 fields are defined as several types (string, integer, etc) across the indices that match this pattern. You may still be able to use these conflict fields in parts of Kibana, but they will be unavailable for functions that require Kibana to know their type. Correcting this issue will require reindexing your data.

The correct field type for each must be: text
message.ip_address ip
message.status_code long
message.time date

How can I solve this conflicts?

Thanks for your help in advance
