Description of problem:

rpcidmapd service came to fail starting since updated from nfs-utils-1.0.9-54.el5 to nfs-utils-1.0.9-60.el5.

In my customer’s environment, there is no problem to start rpcidmapd service. 
However, because of the update, Domain option is disabled and the service is failed to start since the machine host name is not specified in FQDN.

  rpc.idmapd: Unable to create name to user id mappings [失敗]
  rpc.idmapd[2119]: libnfsidmap: Unable to determine a default nfsv4 domain; consider specifying one in idmapd.conf」

The format of /etc/idmap.conf has changed since nfs-utils-1.0.9-60.el5,
and Domain option is commented out by default.
It seems that the file was imported from RHEL6.

Documents don't have explanation about this change.

It is thought that this problem can happen in any system if setting non-FQDN hostname.
I request to make Domain option available by default as the former setting.

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

  nfs-utils-1.0.9-60.el5 or later

How reproducible:

  It always occurs if it applies to a configuration.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set non-FQDN hostname.
2. Update nfs-utils from 1.0.9-54.el5 to nfs-utils-1.0.9-60.el5.
3. Start rpcidmapd service(`service rpcidmapd start`)

Actual results:
  # service rpcidmapd start
  Starting RPC idmapd                     [OK]

Expected results:

  # service rpcidmapd start
  Starting RPC idmapd                     [OK]

No additional minor releases are planned for Production Phase 2 in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, and therefore Red Hat is closing this bugzilla as it does not meet the inclusion criteria as stated in:
