Cannot ping vlan ip on new switch

I just purchased an additional Cisco 2950 switch which is trunked to another 2950.  I am unable to ping the IP address of the VLAN that I created.  I have the same voice and data vlans on each of the switches I can ping computers both ways between the switches.  When I ping the vlan ip sometimes I get a reply then they time out.  Any ideas?

If I shutdown vlan 10 and bring it back up.  I am able to ping the IP for 20 minutes.

if you can post the config for each switch and indicate which ports are used for the inter-switch trunk

Do you have an accessport in the new vlan on the switch with new IP?

I can ping the management address (vlan 10) on Switch 2 from either switch.  On Switch 3 cannot ping the management address (vlan 10) from Switch 2.  If I shutdown vlan 10 and bring it back up.  I am able to ping the IP Switch 3 for 20 minutes.

Thanks for your help.
