management vlan down

i have 4 2960X configured in stack
IOS ver is 15.0
vlan1 is down
i have vlan 7 as management
but vlan 7 is down / down
i tried no shut it comes back as down / down
i dont have any other management vlan up
IP / subnet mask are confirmed to be correct
cdp nei shows the core switch where the stack is connected to ( of course CDP is L2 OSI )
when i do sh int brief | exc unset
i see

vlan 1 administratively down down
vlan 7  down cown
fa0 administratively down

any ideas how to get vlan 7 up ?

Are any other vlans in the up/up state?
For VLAN to be up at least one port must be assigned to VLAN,  and at least one of ports assigned to VLAN need to be operational.

Predrag is correct.  If you don't have any switchports that are in VLAN7 and UP/UP the SVI will stay DOWN/DOWN.
