If i remove deployement to virtual server, then applications deploys and starts. but not runs probably due to spring version conflict issue.

Before I checking the exception, it will be better if you could directly configure the virtual host in the server.xml file in the /var/catalina directory.
Actually, configuring virtual hosts should be done easily in GUI console like in other application servers. configuration in config.xml is kinda cryptic.

I currently could not get anything grails made to run in 3.0 due to not yet discovered  classloading setup. I hoped that moving to OSGi will remove these kind of problems but it is worse because inverse classloading/non overitable classes combo is not supported in 3.0.
You may use <import-packages/> in your deployment plan for 3.0.
