Cisco switch configuration

already configured my switch as attached file. When I try to ping the vlan ID, it returns with timeout. However, "ip routing" has been put in the configuration.It seems that my VLANs can't be communicated with each other. Any idea ?

No file attached. :)
And idea - did you configure default gateway on host(s) to be Interface VLAN IP address?

Do I need to have at least one workstation on VLAN 3 before I can ping the vlan 3 interface in the switch ?

You need active port in that LAN. As long as no active ports in VLAN,  interface VLAN is down (host or active trunk port with assigned VLAN should be enough).

You can check if interface vlan is down issuing command
#sh ip int brief

Vlan20                     192.168.20.1    YES NVRAM  down                  down

yes, they are down.

No device is attached as it is a new switch.

Do you mean I need to configure a port as trunk port to allow vlan 3, 6, ... to pass through for testing.

In fact, we will put four switches in a stack so I believe no trunk port is needed...

Then you will need to attach some host to VLAN to be able to test. Interface VLAN need to be up. :)

So, there should be at least on host plug into the VLAN before I can ping the VLAN interface ?? I can't explicitly turn on VLAN interface on .. ?

You can try:
#interface vlan 1
#no autostate
That should bring interface vlan up, but it does not work on all switches (at least not on all interfaces).
