Hardware 'dislodged' from HPE SAN during cable replacement

Why would one bit of displaced hardware/cable on one box render the whole SAN useless and require a massive outage and a replacement of the whole system?

Surely the whole point of a clustered storage system is that if a box fails, the rest carry on like normal - no single point of failure.

If it caused the system to shutdown, then surely it would be expected to do this in a controlled manor which didn't bork everything, or else it might be better to allow it to run without redundancy and just have a big flashing red light and hooter go off to let you know.
