for a medium network I have two backbone switches HSRP running. both BB are running same vtp domain and same version also pruning enable. after time I add a new vlan on BB1 and I saw it on BB2 in the network I have about 13 switches some of them saw the new vlan and some is not. but the configuration is same for all switches.

also Is it right to configure the same vtp domain name on both  BB?
for your knowledge each switch in the network is in a separate vlan and in BB part each vlan int is represented in HSRP.
BB1(config)#vtp mode server
BB1(config)#vtp domain ABC
 
BB2(config)#vtp mode server
BB2(config)#vtp domain ABC
 
Clnt_Sw(config)#vtp mode client
Clnt_Sw(config)#vtp domain ABC

VTP updates are only sent on layer 2 trunks. So if the switches aren't connected with layer 2 trunks...

Please post the output of "show vtp status" for both switches. Also a "show int status" and indicate which ports connect the switches together.

That would presume nothing has changed. And when something works differently than it did before... something changed.
