SUMMARY: AdminSuite error: "not a valid NIS+ domain"

I solved my own problem. Forgot that changes to /etc/defaultdomain don't
get reflected with a simple restart of AdminSuite.

Problem WAS in /etc/defaultdomain. For whatever reason, the trailing dot in
the domain name wasn't there, and as a result AdminSuite was choking on it.

Was: ""
Fixed entry: ""

I fixed the entry, restarted the server, and AdminSuite works fine now. The
Bug Id: 4052554 ended up confusing things more than it helped.

Thanks to anyone who was about to respond. Find the original posting below.
