When VCEM propagates it causes Network outages?

On 2 separate occasions we pushed out some rather minor changes to our VCEM domain.  We have a very standardized domain and we rarely make many changes to it.   The latest change was adding on a new Vlan into the existing domain.   When the change propagated several dozen servers in 2 separate chassis lost connectivity.    In my opinion these propagations should not cause disruption.   Is there some sort of documentation that indicates which propagation changes would require downtime or reboots.   Has anyone else encountered this behavior?      

 

I wouldn't say that we have any crazy configuration nor a huge number of Chassis to manage (around 20).  So this behavior doesn't seem normal or justified.   The job logs indicate that the propagation was successful and clean.
