Following the advice of another message, I have figured why the error
message came up. Because I already had IP alias done in the root server,
all I had to was to comment out the IPDEV line in the conf file, and the
error disappear.

webmin, and others

Thanks for your help. I have the name server and webmin issue resolved.

However, I still can't figure out why it says "Cannot assign requested
address". I check the IP root to make sure it is the correct one. Every
service also starts up fine, and I am able to connect to them through
the IP. (HTTP, FTP, webmin, SSH).

This is not really a problem currently, but I am just concerned that
such a message is showing up.

check the /etc/resolv.conf in your vserver. there should be an entry
nameserver IP-Adress
with the IP of your main server - or any other box running a well

check for correct settings of IPROOT= in your /etc/vservers/*.conf and
make sure you've got an Interface configured for this IP on your hosting

probably related to the above.
