Set the new switch as client and then you have to go to the server switch and recreate the vlan , sounds like you inserted a new switch with a higher vtp config revision number and you overwrote the vlan database on the original server switch . To reset the config revision number to default give the client a vtp domain name something other than what you want to use and then set it back to the correct vtp domain name this should set the client as 0 for config revision and it won't overwrite if you insert the client back on to the net.

server---trunk-----> client switch

vtp domain name xxxx for both switches

By default, each switch is a VTP Server,

recommended practice to insert a new switch in an already configured VTP Domain, is to promote your switch as a client, and add to your domain, so your Vlan information database is not erased, after that you could promote your switch as a server. By your post probably, you have already erased your vlan information by your new switch. I think that you will need to retype this information.
