Description Viktor Ashirov 2016-01-03 16:07:49 EST
There is a new option that allows users to relax FQDN constraints: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1292649
It should be documented in Installation Guide (both 9 and 10 versions): 
https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Directory_Server/10/html/Installation_Guide/Advanced_Configuration-Silent.html#Advanced_Configuration-inf-File

From the patch:
https://fedorahosted.org/389/attachment/ticket/48332/0001-Ticket-48332-allow-users-to-specify-to-relax-the-FQD.patch

Bug Description:  There are situations when the machine name for ds may not
match the dns name. In these cases we should allow installation without the
strict hostname checks we carry out.

Fix Description:  Add a new option, General.StrictHostCheck which defaults
to true. If true, host name checking is carried out. If false, it is disabled
and any hostname in General.FullMachineName is considered valid.
