Also if you are adding a new sw to the network i recommend you to reset the vtp in that sw (if your network has it.) if you are not sure just do "vtp mode transparent" "vtp mode client" assuming that you are replacing a client sw.
Then you should verify before connecting to the network:
- type of stp that your network is running
- if you have vtp check the config and use the same domain, version, password so the sw gets the vlans from the
- when you have all the vlans set in the sw then add the interfaces to the vlans
- be sure that you are not replacing the root sw.
Maybe there are others things to check but thats what comes to my mind now
