Now installing Drupal version 5.5 …

  <b>Drupal post-install configuration failed : Failed to lookup IP address for</b> zimbra-mclink.it

  More information on using this script can be found at http://drupal.org/.

… failed! See the error message above for the reason why.[/code:1]

This should’nt happens? The domain zimbra-mclink.it effectively exist only for the dns server of the virtualmin machine. But this should be enough. Maybe the script use another method to reverse check the dns entry?

Thank you


What’s in your /etc/resolv.conf?

cat /etc/resolv.conf

domain mclink.it

So the script is trying one of the other name servers first, and getting bad data.

Re-order those nameservers to put first, and try it again. (Or just fix the glue records that are causing the name to fail on those other name servers.)
