Question 4x4 problems with 04 2500HD

hey everyone, just wondering if someone could give me a little insight on my new truck. I just bought it and its my first chevy. I turned on the 4x4 and the front tires are not pulling, i checked to make sure the front driveshaft was turning and it is fine. is it possible the hubs are not locking in automatically? any advice will be greatly appreciated!

I am no expert but you may want to start looking at your vacuum lines.
