What I meant is if you had the main domain called example.com
subdomain called c.example.com
and set the suffix to c.example.com
then retrieving users from the main domain would require appending the
getent passwd administrator(a)example.com But subdomain users couldbe un-qualified
getent passwd some_user_from_subdomain
Also, I wonder if using the fully qualified name, or the netbios name
is really a problem? After all, that's how it's done in Windows..

Not sure I understand, but if all users are in subdomains, then
default_domain_suffix makes sense.
Yes, all users are in subdomains, but there are also users in top domain
I traced NFS4 idmaping problem to ' nss_getpwname' call ; Idmapd on the
NFS server can so far resolve only unqualified names local for its domain ;
I would like to be able to resolve 'nss_getpwname' call for
userA (from A.C.EXAMPLE.ORG
userB (from B.C.EXAMPLE.ORG
for userC (from C.EXAMPLE.ORG
with their respectively unqualified names on the NFS server and nfs client machine;
Could lookup be more simple if server and client machines join C.EXAMPLE.ORG?
