The factory has collapsed after the Switch, which had previously been turned off.

The factory consists of five switch modules (version 6.2.2.d at all, 200e 2040 model)
4020 was some time off, at which time the factory was changed, introducing new zone and alies. After switching on the 4020 factory collapsed. Time to deal was not, therefore restored the configuration files of all switch modules.
This is normal, as it should be?

Thanks in advance.

no, that's not good! the worst thing that should have happened is fabric segmentation, which means that the switch that was just powered on would be denied to join the fabric. the rest of the fabric should normally stay on, up and running.

That is, in any case, switch, which included not pick up the new modified configuration of the factory and normally correctly work?
Switch settings must be reset and re-do his party to the factory?

i'd say it all depends on the changes that you made to the fabric while the switch was turned off. generally speaking, you'd better reset the switch to the factory defaults and then treat it like a new installation.
