Hi,
was it a running stack that suddenly lost one member, or is it a stack you just installed, and one switch can't join the stack?

Hello,

It is not clear based on the logs. Please share below commands output.

See if you can console into the stack and also provide the output to "show stacking" and "show slot detail" from the current master.

Also, if you have an external syslog server configured for the stack, you can check the log history for slot 2 to see if any messages were logged just before the reboot. Some log messages are deleted after a switch reboots.
