3750x replacing 2nd stackwise cable

I have two 3750G switches stacked together however it's not in a full ring configuration:

Stack Ring Speed        : 16G

Stack Ring Configuration: Half

Stack Ring Protocol     : StackWise

And as shown below it's obvious which cable is not working:

show switch neighbors

  Switch #    Port 1       Port 2

  --------    ------       ------

      1         2            None

      2        None           1

It's not flapping - it's like the cable isn't there at all. I'm going to try reseating the cable in there and perhaps an all out replacement if necessary. My question - is there any threat of a reboot of the switch stack or of partitioning of the switch stack by trying to get the 2nd cable working?

3750x replacing 2nd stackwise cable

As long as you have one stack cable you should be fine.  Regarding the stack cable, the best way to resolve this is by undoing the cable and redoing it.  I have seen the same issue on the X series and they only way I got it to work is by unplugging the stack cable and putting it back in.  Make sure all pins are in all the way.  This is specially a pain with the X series.
