[resolv_getsrv_send] (0x0100): Trying to resolve SRV record of '_ldap._tcp.eurosel.az'
[resolve_srv_done] (0x0020): SRV query failed: [Domain name not found]
[set_srv_data_status] (0x0100): Marking SRV lookup of service 'IPA' as 'not resolved'
[be_resolve_server_process] (0x0080): Couldn't resolve server (SRV lookup meta-server), resolver returned (5)

DNS discovery of IPA server failed, becuase you just configured few hostnames
in /etc/hosts

You can add IP address or hostname to the option ipa_server
    ipa_server = _srv_, vm-120.eurosel.az

BTW In my opinion, it is better to have comment before the optiona and not on
the same line :-)
