Cisco Switch - act/lshut

I would like to know what the problem is:
I have 4 switches, 4503w/supII+(IOS), a 4003w/SupII(COS), a 4006w/SupII(COS), a 2912XL w OS 12.0(5)XU (IOS)
The 4503 is configured as vtp server and a router which routes Vlan1, Vlan2, and Vlan 10 for switches 4006,4503,4003,and 2912xl
The 3 other switches are configured as vtp clients
All of them have been trunked with encap dot1q

The question is in regards of the 2912XL switch.
When I add a port let us say f0/2 to Vlan 2 and do a sh vlan, I get an act/lshut for Vlan 2 and the port f0/2.
There is a computer attached to the port f0/2 with the correct address scheme.
Also, Vlan 2 is being used on the other switches and works just fine.

Please Help

act/lshut—VLAN status is active but shut down locally.

Try using the global config mode on the 2924XL:
   no shut vlan 2
