Trunk VLAN's between Catalyst Switches - All VLAN's present on each Switch?

We have two switches and 21 VLAN's:

(1) Catalyst where the VLAN's were created and where all VLAN's are assigned to different ports.
(2) Catalyst that is trunked to Switch 1 and trunked to an ASA for a router on a stick confiuration; this switch only has VLAN 401 assigned to all of its ports.

Do we need to add the rest of the VLAN's to the database of Switch 2 in order to properly route the tagged packets to the ASA?

The trunk port(s) should also include the vlans ...or vlan groups, whose traffic will be passing through it.

Yes. The VLANs must exist on any switch that handle traffic for a VLAN.

Unless VTP is enabled, you need to manually do it.
