Speaking as someone who were running NIS for a long time (I am now thank 
God free from the stinking mess) I can tell you that you are heading for
disaster by not using FQDNs. This will get progressively worse and you 
will sooner or later have to face the music. Better do it now when you can
motivate the transition and all the problems associated with it by the
deployment of a new security infrastructure.
