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"
