Guys i've found a solution.
Rancid does a version check before running Sh Vlan. If the version returned
is 3550 then it returns an error and does not execute sh vlan.

Edit /usr/bin/rancid
comment out the following line in the ShowVLAN subroutine
# return(1) if ($type =~ /^(3550|4500)$/);

Vlan database information is now correctly returned for my 3550s
