    goal here is to add a couple of extended vlans (in 2000-3000) range to
    a client switch. these vlans should not be broadcast across the
    domain. is it possible to add to a client switch?

    I've actually tried adding to the server switch as well and get the
    same error.

    spanning-tree extend system-id
    sh vtp stat

    Have you tried doing it in transparent mode?

    I want this switch to be in client mode in general to pick up other
    vlan changes in the domain. can i put it in transparent temporarily
    to add these vlans then move it back to client without those vlans
    going away?
