VLAN not allowed in management domain

Last Modified: 2012-05-09

I just added a SVI on a core switch (Catalyst 3750).  The VLAN is vlan 370.  The core switch that this VLAN is configured on CAN ping the default gateway for this VLAN -  I can ping the default gateway from my workstation as well.  

There are 3 switches in the mix.
The core switch
AS-01 which is the up linking switch
AS-02 which is the switch that has an Ubuntu server plugged into the Access port for this new VLAN.  

PROBLEM:  The Ubuntu server cannot ping its default gateway:
I am POSITIVE this is because the AS-01 switch in the middle is NOT allowing VLAN 370 into the management domain.  It DOES allow the VLAN across the trunk, just not into the management domain as shown here:

Port        Vlans allowed on trunk
Gi0/1       1,100,110,310,330,340,350-351,360,370,999
Gi0/3       1,100,110,310,330,340,350-351,360,370,999
Gi0/4       1-4094

Port        Vlans allowed and active in management domain
Gi0/1       1,100,110,310,330,340,350-351,360,999
Gi0/3       1,100,110,310,330,340,350-351,360,999
Gi0/4       1,100,110,310,330,340,350-351,360,999

The core switch and the AS-02 switch ARE allowing this new VLAN into the management domain as shown here:

Port        Vlans allowed on trunk
Gi0/1       1-4094

Port        Vlans allowed and active in management domain
Gi0/1       1,100,110,310,330,340,350-351,360,370

The AS-01 switch does NOT have any ports needing to access this VLAN 370 and I don't want it to.  Are there commands I can input to allow this VLAN to be in themanagement domain on this middle AS-01 switch?
