Ran a Vuln Scan today and the network went down.

QG appliance is in the DC. There is an application lvl firewall in between all of the servers. All ports are open for QG applicance to scan the network on.

Today, 2 seperate Dell power switches lost their configs and went down durning a vuln scan. The switches are the gateway to the ESXi VMWare hosts and as a result took down our VM environment as well. Ton of servers have been disconnected.


Is this possible? Was it the scans fault?


What can I do to avoid this in the future?



Any help would be appreciated,
