I am facing problem in trunking two 3560 G Switches.  

Trunk says up but the vlan stays down.

Switch #1 3560G

interface Port-channel5
 switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
 switchport mode trunk

interface GigabitEthernet0/17
  switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
 switchport mode trunk
 channel-group 5 mode on

 Switch #2

interface Port-channel5
 switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
 switchport mode trunk

interface GigabitEthernet0/4
  switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
 switchport mode trunk
 channel-group 5 mode on


Switch (1) is trunked with 5 more 2950 and it works just fine but  for this switch (3560G) - management stays down

Is there just the one link between these two switches? If so, why the channel-group command?

Go to the physical interfaces and issue the command "no channel-group 5 mode on".

Secondly, does the VLAN exist? "show vlan brief"

First off, if you don't have multiple links, you don't need etherchannel. So until you get the single link passing traffic, I would get rid of any etherchannel commands.

Second, in order for traffic to pass for a specific VLAN, it must exist on all switches that the traffic will pass through. So go to the switch that doesn't have the VLANs and create them (either manually or with VTP).

Then post the output of "show int status" and "show int trunk".
