lrmooreCommented:
Are you using VTP between them?
I recommend that one switch be set as VTP client mode, set a VTP domain on both, and only define the VLAN's on the VTP server.

It is this simple:
On client switch:
vtp mode client
vtp domain DOMAIN

On server switch (server mode enabled by default)
vtp domain DOMAIN

You might not have created VLAN on this switch...when you do show vlan on this switch..what do you get??

Otto_NCommented:
I'd suggest that you change the VTP mode to client/server, as lrmoore suggested.  Then, if you configure a vlan on the VTP server, the client will automatically update his vlan table with the new vlan.

Just be carefull, as all the vlans that has been configured on the client might be overwritten (deleted), so please make sure that your proposed server have all the vlans you need for your architecture.

There are some instances where you would need to run vtp in transparent mode (such as if you configure private vlans).  If you keep the switches in transparent mode, you will have to manually configure all vlans on both switches (i.e copy all the "vlan x..." commands to the other switch as well.

Personally, I'd leave it in transparent mode and simply create the VLANs that you're missing.

But that's me...

Also make sure the domain is exactly the same Houston and houston are different.  The domains are case sensitive.

yes we left it transparent and we created the Vlans. I talked to the CCIE guy in chicago and thats what we did. I was wondering why though.
Anyway , thanks all
