I have a stack made of 2 icx-6450, initially we had 3 switch in that stack but one had to be removed. Now the stack is showing an unhealthy status and the 3rd switch is still listed as missing. Is there a way to remove the 3rd switch entry wothout losing the network connection for the assets that are connected to the stack?

I have not done this, but by the looks you need to unconfigure the unit from the ACTIVE controller in the stack.
Use stack unconfig <stack-unit> me (where the stack-unit is the one you want to remove. This should be hitless.
To remove the configuration from a specific IronStack unit, or from the entire stack, enter a
command similar to the following.
Brocade# stack unconfigure me
Syntax: stack unconfigure [<stack-unit> | all | me | clean| rollback]
• <stack-unit> - Unconfigure the stack member with this ID
• all - Unconfigure every unit including this unit
• me - Unconfigure this unit only
• clean - Removes all startup configuration files including v4 and v5 and makes this a clean unit
• rollback - Recovers the earlier version (4 or 3) of a startup configuration

It's not working, here is the result of the show stack
alone: standalone, D: dynamic config, S: static config
ID Type Role Mac Address Pri State Comment
1 S ICX6450-48P standby 748e.f8bc.0f20 0 remote Ready
2 S ICX6450-48P active 748e.f8bc.1420 0 local Ready
3 S ICX6450-48P member 0000.0000.0000 0 reserve
and here is the result of stack unconfigure 3
telnet@JR-6575#stack unconfigure 3
Error! Unit 3 is not a stack member.
The switch is not physicaly connected to the stack

The only other thing I can think of is to use 'no stack unit 3' from the active controller - no reload is required so it should be hitless, Though this will force an election.
