this could also be caused by having an ip configured
for creation within the vserver scripts, but the ip
already is configured on the system ...
if the system already has a 10.0.0.1 the tools will
try to create an alias with this ip, and fail ...
removing the eth0 will solve that issue ...

this is called proc security, and is done by recent
util-vserver automatically, but probably doesn't
apply in your case, as the proc security is off by
