Urgent help needed with Dell switches and VLANs

Hi,
So basically this network runs, and has three VLANs in use - phones, users, servers.
172.17.100.x /24 for phones, 172.17.2.x /24 for servers, 172.17.30.x /24 for users

I don't want to break the vlans, because the phone system is running, and i need it to keep running =)

There are two switches - the first one is a poweredge 6524p which is doing the routing.  the other is a 3524p member switch.  

I am on a computer at port 6 on the 3524p switch... i am able to set an IP of 172.17.30.x and ping everything on that subnet.  However, i'm not able to set an address of 172.17.2.x... i've tried everything to my port (port # 6 on the member switch), but i can't figure out how to do it.

What am i doing wrong?

Attaching the config for both the 6224 and 3524

Thanks in advance.
Remember - i'm port 6 on the 3524. I'm able to connect to vlan 30 (172.17.30.x), but not to vlan 20 (172.17.2.x)...

Looking at your config, port 6 has its PVID set to VLAN 30.  In fact, all ports apart from port 1 are set to VLAN 30.
This means you will not be able to set your IP address to one that should work on VLAN 2 if you are connected to port 6.  However, if you connect to port 1 with an IP address on VLAN 2 it will work.

What is the reason for wanting to be able to use an IP address on each subnet in port 6?

I am trying to be able to set a 172.17.2.x /24 address on port 6.  I don't need to have 172.17.30.x, but at this point that's all i'm able to do.

You need to add port 6 to vlan 20 (server vlan) if you want it to work for ip 172.17.2.x/24

On the switch web-interface, under VLAN --> VLAN Membership... what does this mean (see attached)

Looks like you have port 6 setup as a trunk. Console in and enter the commands Craigbeck posted.
