the configure script sets these up for you. The VIP and the DIP are secondary
IPs so that they can be moved to another machine on director failover.

This takes a bit of figuring out I'll admit. If you don't have it set then
you just miss out on a redundant test.

Nevertheless, it produced rc.lvs-nat amongst others. When

the host can't find its name/IP in the conf file. Are the names/IPs
the host uses, the same as in the conf file?

You can ignore any other errors till you fix this problem.
