Description Yin.JianHong 2013-08-27 00:42:07 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1001438 +++

Description of problem:
[root@dhcp12-125 ~]# rpc.nfsd -h
rpc.nfsd [-d|--debug] [-H hostname] [-p|-P|--port port] [-N|--no-nfs-version version] [-V|--nfs-version version] [-s|--syslog] [-T|--no-tcp] [-U|--no-udp] nrservs
[root@dhcp12-125 ~]# rpc.idmapd -h
rpc.idmapd: '-h' is an invalid argument.
[root@dhcp12-125 ~]# rpc.idmapd --help
rpc.idmapd: '--' is an invalid argument.

I think a unix/linux command should output the right usage, if specify invalid, or specify -h

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpc.idmapd -h 

Actual results:
[root@dhcp12-125 ~]# rpc.idmapd -h
rpc.idmapd: '-h' is an invalid argument.
[root@dhcp12-125 ~]# rpc.idmapd --help
rpc.idmapd: '--' is an invalid argument.

Expected results:
output the usage, if specify -h or --help
output the usage, if specify invalid option, notice and then output usage:
